    could this be one? It's berries are noticeably larger than the rest. I pulled 2 from other vines to compare.

    I also took a pic of the leaf. I wasn't sure if scuppernong had a particular leaf or not.

    I will get my caliper at some point to measure the berry but if nothing else I will know for sure in good time/if the berry gets dark or not.

    If the stems of the leaves and the tendrils are green, it's a bronze. If they have some reddish tinge, it's a purple. I don't know of any leaf patterns, but I don't know what I don't know.

    Are the bronze ones rare? So far I have only spotted 2 definites but they are both males. The grape in the thread has green stems but the tendrils are tan with a yellow tip unfortunately.
