  • Ison's Nursery

    Some of you may have heard of this nursery in Brooks, Georgia or maybe
    even ordered from them. Its a small family owned place since 1934. It
    is located about twenty miles from me and I have attached the link to the
    website and catalog. They only carry three varieties of figs but many other
    fruits and veggies. The infamous Brown Turkey, Celeste and Texas Ever Bearing.

      If you like Muscadines that is their specialty. If you don't like Muscadines you should very complex spicy flavors. I know some don't care for the skins and seeds but it's worth The explosion of flavor. Along with a good tart/sweet mulberry one of my favorite fruits for complex flavor

        I just ordered two muscadines from them, Lane and Late Fry. Good prices!

          I bought a few muscadines from Ison's last year. The prices were good and the plants were of a nice quality. I'm growing them in pots and overwintering them in the garage with my fig trees. Not sure how they'll do in Pittsburgh, but they survived the winter and haven't come out of dormancy yet.

            Just a little update in case anyone is curious about growing muscadines in zone 6. When I ordered my muscadines from Ison's last year, they gave me a bonus Early Fry vine. I planted one in a pot and one in the yard. Both the vine in the pot that I overwintered in the garage and the vine that I planted in the yard with no protection had zero frost damage. Not sure if my yard will get enough heat to ripen the grapes well, but Early Fry seems pretty hardy.

          Mike,

          I have purchased items from Ison's before. I just ordered some more Muscadine varieties from them and a couple Fuyu (I always think Homer Simpson and the Fugu episode) persimmons from them. I bought the persimmons to compliment a couple Saijo persimmon trees that I purchased recently from Just Fruit and Exotics.

            Do you guys know if the Muscadines need a pollinator plant, i.e., male plant and a female plant to produce fruit?

              Some varieties need a pollinator and some are self fruitful.

                  Thanks @newandawg, I just ordered the Southland Muscadine to try here in south central Texas 8b. I like the idea of making grape jelly.

                  My favorite grandson and I had fun making home grown blackberry jelly so making grape jelly should be fun too.
