The grape cultivar in question is 'Scuppernong'. The fruit is one of the oldest and most widely grown of the muscadines. Scuppernong has an unusual color that ranges from greenish amber to reddish bronze, depending on how much sun the fruit receives, and they are dotted all over with russet speckles. The flesh is sweet and almost plum flavored. They're great for fresh eating and for sweet, golden wine. Scuppernongs take their name from a river and lake in North Carolina.
