Was picking blackberries today and saw what may be wild grapes. But there are all kids of little green pods busting open with 2-4 green pods inside. Is this how grapes grow? U can post pictures later if anyone needs them.

How young are those? These, whatever they are, are extremely young.

They look similar but not exactly like the buds. I'll try and get a picture when I get home if it's still light enough.

Well, after some research and more knowledgable people helping, it appears to be wild Fox Grapes.
Upon further inspection, what I thought was pods was one that had busted open. I broke another open and it was just the seed in there. So, I'm an idiot. But a now better educated idiot!!
Looks like some wine making is in my fall schedule now!!
