Muscadines: a grapevine species native to the present-day southeastern United States that has been extensively cultivated since the 16th Century. The muscadine berries range from bronze to dark purple to black in color when ripe. Muscadines are not only eaten fresh, but also are used in making wine, juice, and jelly.
Scuppernong: a large type of muscadine, a type of grape native to the southeastern United States. It usually has a greenish or bronze color, and is similar in appearance and texture to a white grape, but rounder and about 50% larger. The name comes from the Scuppernong River in North Carolina, where it was found and first cultivated during the 17th century; it is mentioned in the North Carolina official state toast. The name itself traces back to the Algonquian word ascopo meaning "sweet bay tree". The fruit consists of four parts: the outer skin or hull; the pulp, or 'meat'; seeds; and juice. Several small green seeds are found in each grape. The skin is very thick and tart. The pulp is viscous and sweet.
