I think your problem is more like lack of a pollinator. I had 2 muscadines that were well established. I purchased another and the next year it produced (only a few grapes but it did produce). It definitely needs another vine.

Most fruiting vines and bushes take a few years to start producing well. I hope the link is helpful to you.

You do need a pollinator to set fruit and also any fruit takes 2 -3 years to produce.

Anyone have knowledge of muscadine vines? I planted mine a year ago, I thought it died during the winter because it shriveled up... but then it reflowered in the spring. It is now massive and running out of room to grow. The problem is - I can't get it to produce any good fruit. A few small ones will come every now and then, but mostly it is just vine! How do I get to to make more muscadines? Any help is appreciated! (And just so you know, I'm not exactly a gardening expert, I'm more of the 'stick it in the ground and water it and give in compost' type of gardener!) Do I need another vine? Do I need to prune it? If I need to prune it, what's the proper way to do so?
