‘Southern Jewel’ (Vitis rotundifolia Michx.) is a new muscadine grape cultivar being released by the University of Florida that is a high-yielding, disease–resistant, large black-fruited variety. It has the unique characteristic of producing fruit in bunches of six to 12 berries that strongly adhere to the peduncle (Fig. 1). It has an excellent taste and a crunchy texture with a palatable skin, making it well-suited for fresh fruit consumption.
