Interesting Tidbit: ‘Cowart’ was released in 1968 by B.O. Fry from the University of Georgia. ‘Cowart’ was selected from the cross ‘Higgins’ x Ga. 28 in 1960. Historically, ‘Cowart’ was an important cultivar because it combined good size and berry quality with self-fertile flowers. Many large muscadine plantings consisted of ‘Cowart’ as the pollinizer and ‘Fry’ as the primary cultivar.
