Grapes still green

Green grapesMy best guess was that the found grapevine near the site of the old homeplace on our farm was a Concord. So when Mom's Concord started churning out so many ripe fruits she had to embark on a daily juicing session, I braved the thorns and weeds and went to take a second look at my mystery vine.

To my surprise, the grapes are still green and very much unripe. Let's see if I can remember to check on the vine again in a couple of weeks to discover what color they become as they soften up.

Might be wrong here, but this looks like it could be a wild muscadine/scuppernong vine.

We have a green "Concord" for lack of a better name, it's 100+ years old and is yellowish when ripe, and delicious! Some old timers call it a White Concord.
