Tom Blalock has learned much over the years about how to care for muscadines – or the more commonly referred to scuppernong.
“I am the sharecropper for my 95-year-old neighbor and I take care of his grape vines for him, for the most part,” said the Harlem resident.
“He is my conscience in suggesting and informing; he does a marvelous job.”
Blalock said pruning the grape vines should be done by the end of March.
“I try to prune after freezing weather, but I don’t think that’s critical,” he said.
