No idea..but I tell ya, we lived in NC where they make wine out of it ..what an insult to the pallett..hahaha.
Personally don't like the taste of the grapes to begin with, but some people swear by it.
Have you tried Ukrops?

Thanks for the reply. I tried Ukrops and it's not something they stock. I'm sending Hippydotdad to Trader Joe's tonight. By the way, does anybody know what a Sea Grape is?

Try contacting Bigg''s Busy Bee Farm on West River Bend Road. Joe Biggs, owner. I met him year before last and he grows (grew) scuppernong grapes right here in Fredericksburg. His phone number is 540-786-4109

Sea Grape, Cocoloba, is an evergreen shrub or small tree that lives in the tropic south. Well suited for beach fronts/sand dunes. It has small white flowers, some up to one foot clusters, followed by purple berries that can be made into jelly. Are you in a "jelly" kind of mood?

I have never heard of scuppernong jelly being put up commercially. My mother used to buy scuppernongs and another thick-skinned grape at the farmer's market back home. I loved them and ate most of them. She may have made jelly from them. Scuppernongs have dark skins while the other grape has a yellowish-green skin. The harder I try to recall the name of the yellow-skinned grape, the more elusive it becomes.

The other grape is called muscadine. Both are thick-skinned. I may have the colors reversed. One is yellowish or bronze, & the other is very dark. Has been a loooong time since I had either. Both are quite delicious by themselves.

BTW, Jean Louise Finch, is one of my favorite characters.
