There's good news for fans of muscadine grapes. ARS scientists in Poplarville, Miss., and their University of Florida colleagues are putting the finishing touches on a new, fresh-market muscadine that will offer excellent flavor and high levels of compounds known as phenols, thought to benefit our cardiovascular system.

Muscadines are grown commercially in the southeastern United States, where they are often called scuppernongs and are used primarily in juices, wines, jellies and preserves. They are valued for their high yields--8 to 12 tons an acre--and for resistance to pests such as phylloxera, nematodes, fungi and the microbe that causes Pierce's disease.
