Muscat (grape)

The Muscat family of grapes include over 200 grape varieties belonging to the Vitis vinifera species that have been used in wine production and as raisin and table grapes around the globe for many centuries. Their colors range from white (such as Muscat Ottonel), to yellow (Moscato Giallo), to pink (Moscato rosa del Trentino) to near black (Muscat Hamburg). Muscat grapes and wines almost always have a pronounced sweet floral aroma. The breadth and number of varieties of Muscat suggest that it is perhaps the oldest domesticated grape variety, and there are theories that most families within the Vitis vinifera grape variety are descended from the Muscat variety.

How to propagate Muscat vine I googled and read up on how to propagate vines with cuttings. I bought the rooting hormone, followed instructions and after two years, nada. One spring, I was standing over my compost pit and I noticed what looks like small muscat vines. I was curious, so I dug them up. Turns out the cuttings that rooted and sprouted was from the previous winter when I trimmed the vines and buried the trimmings in the compost pit. So, this winter take a few cuttings and bury it 2 inches deep and just let nature take it's course. Make sure to use the thick end of the cutting, have three nodes per cutting and water occasionally. Good Luck!
