I would like to grow a muscadine grape. Would it be suitable to grow over a chook yard fence. I would like to provide them with shade in our hot summer and in winter let the sun through I live in Queensland near Beaudesert and have sandy soil .I would like to grow the grapes to eat and provide my chooks with shade at the same time

Yes, but the chooks will get to the grapes first.

What is happening here? My muscadine grape Adonis has just started flowering again. Do they crop twice a year or is this just an unusual event? There is quite a large number of flowers now on the vine. I imagine if the flowers set then they would be ripe around March or April.

if you grow on a north/south running fence they should fruit on both sides, so both you and chooks should get some. besides, the vine is large, so they wont be able to reach them all. good luck.

My muscadine grape 'Adonis' is flowering again for the 3rd time this season. The last flowering in early January produced 15 small bunches of berries that are now as big or bigger than a $2 coin. I hope they will ripen before winter.

Is this usual for muscadines???

I want to start muscadine grapes. Every thing I read states 6-8 hours of sun light. the old timers always grew them in the shade of other trees. Which one is correct.

Mine get 6 hours during summer and no sun at all in winter as they are on the south side of the house.

An update on my Noble Muscadine experiment in Melbourne - 2 years and success - they grow well in Melbourne and just as rampant -- so will have to give a good prune come winter - Fruit flavour is different but nice - have to make juice if i get a few ripening at once - biggest plus id no fungal issues at all and Adonis is self fertile too as only have one but could get far bigger crops maybe with a Black Noble?
