Fox News reporter shows muscadine plants and explains how North Carolina produces around 1200 tons of muscadine grapes a year.
The muscadine has traditionally been used to create wines and jellies … plus people in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and other states where the muscadine grows love to eat the raw fruit.
But now researchers are finding that the muscadine is actually America’s strongest source of grape resveratrol.
The reason is that European grapes – as grown in California – are not so stressed by potential fungus attacks because they are so pampered. But the rugged muscadine thrives in humid conditions … so it needs to have a stronger immune system. And resveratrol is the plant’s immune system.
