The Best Grapevine for Wines!
The Carlos Scuppernong grape is that rare vine that is both high in looks and bounty.
If you’re into wine production, there are numerous reason to get Carlos…
● Heavy yields
● Top producing wine grape in North Carolina
● Low maintenance
● Cold hardy
● Seasonal beauty
The Carlos will add a flourish to your edible landscape design. The glossy green leaves are complemented by metallic bronze fruits when ripe. But the looks are no match for the taste. Carlos is highly sought after for its choice edibility in wines, juices, and jellies. In fact, 90 percent of all muscadine grapes produced in North Carolina are of the Carlos variety!
By mid-season, the fruits will turn a uniform bronze which means it’s time to get your plucking hands and basket ready. In optimal growing conditions, the Carlos can produce 100 pounds of fruit on a single vine! If you’re not ready to make wine immediately, you can store the grapes for up to three weeks in the fridge. Plus, the Carlos Scuppernong is rich in antioxidants, and it contains Resveratrol, which is widely known to be health-promoting. And, they’re delicious right off the vine with a rich sweet tartness.
The beauty of Carlos is that it's one of the few muscadine varieties that is self-pollinating. Better yet, it’s perhaps the least fussy of all grapevines. Pests and disease are a non-factor, which makes it a prime candidate for no sprays. It can handle drought, intense sun, and cold with ease. Fertilize several times a year with a well-balanced organic fertilizer, and make sure the soil is fairly moist and well-drained. That’s it!
