I grow several plants that would make good wine and jellies. Apache Blackberry, Nanking Cherry, Black Chokeberry, Concord and Catawaba Grapes, Whitney and Chestnut Crabapple, Plum, Persimmon and Raspberry just to get you started.

I don't live in Texas, we live and the nursery is in Michigan. My sons best friends grew up in the panhandle of northern Texas and has planted almost everything we grow with excellent results. pH can be on the high side and in that case you will need to add acid/sulfur to your soil to lower the pH to around something under 7 but not less than 6.5. Hope this is helpful and thanks for the questions.
