Artist's Description

We have had this wild grape vine for years and it’s the first time that we have notice bearing fruit. It’s growing up and over a elm tree. If I could reach all the grapes I would make jelly :) The blue Jay’s seem to love it!
Bexar Co.,Texas

*Blurred the orginal photo for the background, placed and resize the orginal photo on top and erased the edges.

Mustang grape favors disturbed ground, fence rows, woodland edges and sandy slopes in the eastern half of Texas, east to Louisiana and north into Arkansas and Oklahoma. Althought its fruit is usually pungent and unpleasant, the fruits of the variety diversa are actually sweet and have often been used in wine-making. This is a high-climbing vine which tolerates great heat and drought. The lower surface of its leaves is very white and densely hairy, a noticeable ornamental feature. It is reported to be largely resistant to Phylloxera and hybridizes with several other grape species.
