Muscadine Twilight Field Day Aug. 5 in Tifton

University of Georgia

This can't be a bad way to end your day.

The Georgia Muscadine Twilight Field Day will start at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 5, at the Tifton, Ga., Campus Conference Center (Rural Development Center).

The event will start with presentations on muscadine diseases by University of Georgia plant pathologist Phil Brannen and Valdosta State University professor Cameron Whiting.

Then the Georgia Muscadine Association will provide a free hamburger and hot dog supper. All they ask is that you call Kay Dunn at (229) 386-3410 and let her know how many people will be attending so they'll know how much to cook.

Then comes the dessert. UGA horticulturist Mel Hall will lead a tour of the muscadine breeding plots. You'll be able to see and taste many cultivars and selections of muscadines.

What more could you ask?
