Variety Spotlight: African Queen Muscadine
If you have room for one more plant in your vineyard I would recommend planting the African Queen. It is one of our releases that works well for the home gardener. It is a female variety that ripens mid season, a vigorous grower, as well as a consistent producer. At the time of its release it was one of our most popular varieties but after the introductions of Black Beauty and Supreme, the variety lost some of its popularity but is now enjoying being discovered again all over.
Available Plant Sizes:
2 Year Bare-root – The majority of the plants we grow are 2 year bare-root. The average length of the vines are 2-4′ with an excellent root system.
