Description

Edisto Cantaloupe (92 days) Firm, vigorous plant, resistant to downy and powdery mildew. Excellent quality with 6 to 7 melons per plant.

The melons thrive best and develop the highest flavor in a hot dry climate. Sow the seed after all danger of frost has passed. For an extra early crop, sow seed in containers, in a glass covered bed 2-3 weeks before last killing frost in spring and transplant after frost. The most suitable soil is a warm, rich, sandy loam with a pH of 6.0 to 6.5; however, they will do well in most types of well drained soils. Fertilize with a quality garden fertilizer. Plant in rows 5-6 feet apart. Plant 6 seed per hill (1 inch deep) 2 feet in the row and gradually thin to 1-2 plants per hill. Sidedress with Nitrate of Soda. Two pounds of seed will plant one acre; 1 ounce will plant 800 ft. of row.
