You sure is rotund, Mr. Dixie. Your girth
and fiery skin are intimidating to the
uninitiated. But those who know you well
can attest to the fact that you are a true

Dixie Red Grape Details

Dixie Red

Well suited for growing in the hot southeastern or Gulf states of America, Dixie can be used for wine or as a table grape. This Vitis rotundfolia (Muscadine) variety originated from a Topsail x (Wallace x Lucida) cross. The vine produces clusters, with large red berries. It ripens early and can be quite productive in warm climates.
