SRSFC - Muscadine Production Guide - ../sec. 14

SRSFC - Muscadine Production Guide - ../sec. 14: "Muscadine single wire trellises normally have the wire 5 feet about the ground.The 5 foot trellis has been the most popular with Georgia growers since it allows for better air circulation that shorter trellises. Trellis construction is the most expensive step in establishing a muscadine grape vineyard. Since the trellis is relatively permanent, it should be strong enough to support a heavy crop and made of durable materials that will last for many years. All wood products used in the vineyard should be pressure treated with wood preservatives (or of a specially durable wood type you know will last in your area)."

You are so right! When I retired to Florida, I shocked to find that Publix produce was brought in from Mexico, Chile and Guatemala. It is often so old looking that I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot poll. I really have to frequent my local farmer's markets to find oranges and half decent tomatoes. If I can grow a prolific crop of concord grapes in Canada, why oh why do the grapes at the grocery store all come from South America?
