Latin Name: Cucumis melo

Days to Maturity: 88


Netted 3-4 pound fruits that keep well and hold up well in the field. Very sweet medium orange interior. The standout in Twin Oaks’ 2013 Downy Mildew melon trial; in the 2014 trial we found varieties with more resistance, but Edisto 47 still did well. We've been growing this variety at Twin Oaks for three years, selecting for sweetness and good appearance. Longer season than many melons. From Clemson, 1965. 33 seeds/g. Grown by Twin Oaks Seed Farm. Certified Organic by QCS.
