And how are they different? are they more like a traditional grape. Are they good for eating. Just curious.

That's a big question, heck, there's a big difference between different varieties of muscadines.
I make wine every year out of wild grapes; just because I like a challenge (plus, the grapes are free !!). But the wine is certainly not to everyone's taste. Same thing for muscadines; some varieties make a pretty good wine; others not so much; and to each person their own preference.

2013 Wines:
Noiret; Muscat; Vignoles; Pear/Apple, Zinfandel/Merlot/Cab-Sav Blend; Elderberry; Blackberry/Elderberry;
