It's time to remove any fruit left on the muscadine vines

Do not prune too early. For years we pruned our vines beginning after the Thanksgiving Holiday. But through trial, error and experience we have found the best time to prune muscadine vines is from mid January to mid March. We have found that a vine that has not been pruned can handle colder temperatures or big swing in temperatures better than a vine that has been pruned. In general we experience our coldest temperatures from late December-January, by pruning later we are giving our plants a better chance of coming through the winter with little or no cold weather damage.
If you are used Blue-X plant shelters this year and your vines have reached the top wire, now is the ideal time to remove the shelters.
Happy Planting & Keep Growing!
