SKU: SKU166841
$2.29

Cucumis melo  (86 days)  Edisto 47 was released in 1964 by Dr. Morris C. Hughes, horticulturist at the Clemson Edisto Experiment Station Blackville, SC.  Edisto 47 is an improvement on the 1957 release of Edisto. It has a much higher resistance to both downy and powdery mildew and same level of resistance to alternaria.  Well known in the Mid-Alantic region and hot humid areas where its disease resistance excels over other varieties.  Flesh coloring is a deep rich salmon color having tender but firm flesh.  High sugar content.  Vines are extremely vigorous with large leaves and rather heavy stems.  Melon size is a bit larger than Hale's Best Jumbo being about 4-5 lbs. Excellent keeper and premier farmers market variety.
