Mustang Grape

Vitis mustangensis

About This Plant

Sun or shade. Deciduous. Grapevine climbs prodigiously over shrubs and up into trees, often shading them completely. The grapes ripen to dark purple in August and September. Mustang grapes are usually bitter, with a skin containing high tannin levels, but if picked at the right time they can be used for homemade wine and jellies.

Origins: Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas

Maintenance
