East Texas wild grapes, also called Muscadines grow on long vines and usually grow around creeks and streams. Their range extends far past Texas and have been known to grown from Texas all the way to New York. Their native climate is warm humid areas, such as the deep southern part of the USA.
The grapes start off green and turn a dark purple color when their ready to be picked. The taste is sweet, with the husk being a little tough and maybe a little tart. Some types of Muscadines may stay green when they are ready to be picked.
Muscadines have a high Polyphenol content. Which is supposed to promote good health.
The inside of the grape has at least 1 seed that is about 1/8 – 3/16 of an inch long.
The Muscadine grapes can be used to make jelly, juice or preserves.
From a survivalist point of view, this is a good wild plant to have around your camp. If you have any creeks or streams, they may already be growing and you may not even know it.
