Wild Grapes (Vitis cinerea)

The wild grapes are a wonderful find in Arkansas. This year appears to have been the perfect weather for grapes. Darrell and I spotted an abundance of wild grapes and muscadines earlier this year and have watched them begin to ripen. This past week we picked a gallon of muscadines and about 2 cups of the wild grapes, so if you are a forager looking for a passel of wild grapes, I’m telling you, “the time is NOW”!
