'Summit' was released in 1977 by R. Lane of the University of Georgia. 'Summit' was selected from the cross 'Fry' x Ga. 29-49.
We currently recommend 'Summit' as a main season bronze muscadine for the fresh fruit market. Although 'Summit' is slightly smaller than 'Fry', it has better productivity, more berry rot resistance, and a drier stem scar. Color is slightly pinker than 'Fry', but otherwise its appearance is similar.
