Re: [nafex] Southern Home grape

I have an idea of how to obtain it, but you should contact me off-list.
Dr. Dunstan made a LOT more selections, and his work was carried on by Bob
Zehnder of SC, who is himself getting elderly.  Bob has many selections of
muscadine-bunch grape hybrids and bunch grapes that are cast-iron healthy
against some increadible disease pressure there.
