Is it a Muscadine or a Scuppernong?

One of the most common questions we are asked is….What is the difference between a muscadine and a scuppernong? Many people in fact consider any bronze muscadine to be a “scuppernong” But this is actually not true.

“All Scuppernongs are Muscadines, but not all Muscadines are Scuppernongs.” The name Muscadine is a broad category of grape that includes many varieties of both bronze and black grapes. Both bronze and dark varieties taste great and make wonderful jams, jellies, pies, juices and wines.

Scuppernong is “one” variety of a muscadine that happens to be bronze. With Scuppernong being one of the oldest and most popular varieties, the name is sometimes used to refer to any bronze variety of muscadine. There are now many other varieties of muscadines used both in wine production and for fresh eating.
