Have You Tasted Fruits Called as Muscadine? - Economics 6

The grape like fruits, Muscadine

We buy grapes in the farmer market sometimes. Unexpectedly, we noticed the grape like fruit recently.

The shape are similar to grapes, its called as Muscadine, Vitis rotundifolia. Some differences of Muscadine compared to grapes are:

- rounder or oval berry shape

- thicker and tougher skin

- contain about 5 seeds in each fruit.

- flesh is clear and translucent

Many colors are found in the market, we believe common colors are:

- light bronze

- pink

- purple

- black

- light green


Muscadines are hanging over the branch

This fruit is native to America, grows mainly in the areas of southeastern and south central USA.

It has been cultivated since 400 years ago, and able to grow from hot to cold climates in the states such as:

- Florida

- Texas

- Oklahoma

- New Jersey

- Delaware

Unfortunately, it is reported that just 12 of 50 states sell Muscadines in the market, but not in regular basis.

There are “huge” opportunity both to grow and market this fruit. A good source of income for farmers.

Based on simple facts and economic estimation:

- new target markets will be no or less competition, and even to be expanded to nearby foreign markets such as Canada and Mexico.

- ten acres may produce 100,000 pound of Muscadines

- 100,000 pound means US$ 200,000.

Finally, have you tasted Muscadines? What do you think? Do you like it?

  2. ...in the '60s I studied horticulture at the University of Georgia and I had a job working for a professor who was doing research on ways to raise the sugar content of muscadines.

  8. Tanza, Muscadine grapes are big business here in East Tennessee. One nearby town, Sweetwater, has a big annual muscadine grape festival. Lots of grapes, items made with muscadine grapes and plenty of muscadine wine. Its all wasted on us though as we prefer seedless grapes and the wine is much too sweet for our taste. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
