muscadine grapes , why?

    9 responses

olaf starts with ...
Just picking muscadine grapes and they are well worth the effort. Not to be compared with Vitis species but have a distinctive flavour and as a bonus the seeds have an anti oxidant that will make you younger and richer in 14 days.

What variety/s of muscadine do you have? I have Adonis and Noble. The Adonis has fruited this season and is flowering again. I am still waiting for the fruit on the Noble to ripen!

I have Adonis and Noble ,too. However, I was sent seed from the USA of an unamed variety and it is now ready . Not everyone will like it but I really do.

muscadines cant be grown well from seed, apart from this, it's illegal to send seeds without going through quarantine in Australia

Piffle, snort! It costs around $20,000 to get a plant through quarantine process . Seeds posted do go via quarantine inspection and the progeny of muscadine seeds are fine.

It's not as expensive as that. You're looking at about 3k all said and done. I know this because I was considering doing this last year and that price is fairly accurate.

Quarantine is something that really needs reform. It's mostly why australia remains in the doldrums of horticultural diversity.

Beg to differ. The person that imported Daley's muscadines into OZ wrote an article and claimed 20k as cost. I imagine there is no fixed price but varies with the threat level and the fumigation procedure , length of quarantine etc.

The margins at 20k simply wouldn't be there for me. If I was going to take a punt on something to the tune of 20k there's no way it would be on a plant species which may or may not succeed. Haven't these people heard of the stock market?

That said, I will again reiterate the need for quarantine reform. The U.S. Does it so, so much better than us.

Sternus, the muscadine is actually a good bet. The Americans really get off on them and , I must say, that I do like them. Plus they take all this rain and humidity in their stride.
AQIS certainly needs to change . Had it not been for imported seeds and plants we would now subsist on Persoonia roots and accacia seeds. Would fix the obesity problem ,though.
