Muscadine

A bitten ripe muscadine explodes in my mouth like wine dynamite.

    Those grapes look yummy, I must check their availability! Liquid sunbeams sound good.

      I am not sure if they are grown ib Australia. They are descended from old US southern wild grapes. But they are delicious and fragrant. Thick skinned and perfectly round they are bronze or deep purple in color and so dull of juice. The peel is inedible.

    I don’t believe I’ve ever had a muscadine. Cotton candy grapes and moon drop grapes are the popular ones around here.I’m certainly intrigued enough to take the time to peel one and find out how they taste.

      Don’t peel. Put between your teeth and bite and suck out juice, all at once. Suck out all the pulp. It is like a sweet wine, a wild grape. It also has seeds. Spit them out after sucking out the juice and pulp.
