I too have been looking for this variety, either cutting or plant. Closest, I've found was a seller in China which is a no go. Plus not sure if it's even the really deal.

Iím on the market for this plant. Willing to pay top dollar.


These are my favorite fruit.
Really hard to find in markets here in the us. When I was in Korea, it was everywhere.
Good quality grapes sell for about $25 a bunch.

How well do Muscat grapes grow in the Southeast? I have always shied away from growing anything other than muscadines, since the prevailing wisdom seems to be that our climate, specifically our high humidity, are not that conducive for non-muscadine grapes.

I'm not sure how well these do...Muscadines are the go to grape and the new and improved ones from Ison's are top notch....

To describe the taste of these, think of infusing a crunchy green table grape with the taste of a muscat. I believe they have seeds, but they are sprayed with giberellic acid to make them seedless? That combined with the techniques of thinning the grapes explains why we will never have any commercial shine muscat growers in the US. It's too much labor and the public aint gonna want to pay over $25 a bunch.

My parents had a friend who smuggled a cutting back, but they ended up moving houses and lost the vine. I have no idea why they didn't bring it with them.

Unfortunately, I cant. If I could I would. Tree is over 10 hour drive away and I have no idea who lives there and whereabouts. All I know, the grape is nonexistent...It's a rabbithole not worth going into.

There has to be someone who has this in US... If you're out there, I'm willing to empty my entire bank account ;D

I purchased some grapes at H-Mart last year. The grapes had some small seeds so I went back and purchased more ($25-$35 per bunch).

After planting the seeds, none germinated but it was worth trying, they are huge, tastes great but can't grow them seeds. I remember these Shine Muscat was sourced from two different locations to these Asian markets. Price was $14 per pound.

I have recently been eating Muscat Beauty grapes from Publix. They are in season right now and relatively inexpensive (more expensive than regular seedless grapes, less expensive than Grapery varieties). Some of what I have read online indicates that this is a variety developed by Chilean growers and unavailable to the public. I would love if that was not the case and someone could point me to someone selling this variety.

Very common in Korea, and this variety from Japan
I can get scion after the leaves have fallen
In order to obtain good quality grape clusters, sufficient grain of grapes removal and Gibberellin treatment are required.

And that is why this will never be grown in the US- too much work. The general public isnít gonna pay 25+ per cluster.
If you could source scions this fall, Iíd be willing to get some?

You can put me on that list for cuttings as well if you can get some.

I would of loved to grab some cutting, but I hesitated, is it okay to import from S. Korea? Last time I brought some cuttings (vitis) from another country the inspector came knocking at my door and wanted to inspect my postage stamp of a backyard. He confiscated the cuttings and said they need to be incinerated. I'm more cautious now.
