Delicious (Vitis rotundifolia Michx.) is a new muscadine grape cultivar being released by the University of Florida that is black-fruited, early and even ripening, high-yielding, and disease-resistant (Fig. 1). It has excellent taste and texture with an edible skin, making it well-suited for fresh fruit consumption. It also has potential for wine production. The berries have a dry stem scar and harvest readily with mechanical shaking.
