Abstract

Some people consider muscadines as the most satisfactory of all fruits for the home garden in the south (1). An increasing interest in muscadine culture in Florida is indicated by growers who have planted them for commercial production, and by others who plan vineyards for the near future. Therefore, information on the performance of muscadine varieties in central Florida is valuable for potential growers, and for research and extension personnel.

Abstract

Under conditions favoring Pierce’s disease (PD) infection in the vineyards at Leesburg, Florida, 222 Euvitis scion clones, 60 Muscadinia clones, and 49 Euvitis rootstock clones were grown and observed for PD symptoms for 8 or more years. There were 21 PD-resistant scion clones, 20 of which derived their resistance from 1 or more of 4 species: Vitis smalliana Bailey, V. simpsoni Munson, V. shuttleworthi House, and V. aestivalis Michx. There were 22 PD-resistant Muscadinia clones, predominantly of V. rotundifolia Michx. background. There were 15 Euvitis rootstock clones with resistance derived from one of six native species: V. candicans Engelm., V. champini Planch., V. cordifolia Michx., V. shuttleworthi, V. simpsoni, and V. smalliana.
