Can you grow muscadine grapes in dry hot weather?
« on: May 13, 2019, 07:12:37 PM »
I have decided I want to try growing some muscadine grapes. They do well in the heat and humidity but will they grow in dry hot weather? Has anyone grown them in weather similar to Las Vegas?

You’re right that they like heat and can be cold sensitive.
But I think generally they need good soil moisture.
But I am guessing.....
If you had irrigation perhaps you’d be fine
