What’s a scuppernong?

Even many southerners have never heard of the South’s native grape, the scuppernong.  A variety of muscadine (Vitis rotundifolia), the grape is the state fruit of North Carolina.

Settlers in Sir Walter Raleigh’s Outer Banks colony wrote of this native vine in 1554. The grape’s bronze, green or deep red skin is tough and sour, hiding the voluptuous, sweet flesh.
