Vigorous, productive, and self-pollinating.

One of the most cold-tolerant varieties!
The most widely grown yellow muscadine in North Carolina and in fact, the southeastern United States, this vigorous, productive, self-fertilizing cultivar is very popular for wine and juice processing. It was originally released as a bronze juice and fresh-market variety (since it has a dry stem scar) with a flavor similar to Scuppernong. Its outer skin is rather bitter, but the fruit itself is quite sweet with a 15-16% sugar content.

Carlos is one of the most cold-tolerant varieties when completely dormant in winter and has shown excellent pest and disease resistance as well as very good tolerance of drought, heat, humidity, and sun. The vines tend to be very healthy and need no spraying, reliably producing large yields of delicious medium-size (5 to 6 grams per berry) fruits that ripen early to midseason.

Plant Carlos in full sun. Avoid shaded areas if at all possible, as fruit set and production will be reduced if the vines are in the shade for more than two or three hours a day during the growing season.

Muscadine will produce crops of fruit in a wide range of soils as long as the soil is well-drained. Cannot ship to OR, WA, CA, ID. Zones 7-9.
