Melon - Edonis F1

Melon ‘Edonis' is a productive variety that is very early to ripen particularly when grown under glass. The pale orange fleshed fruits weigh up to 600g and can be harvested from midsummer onwards. The sweet flavoured fruits have a refreshing, delicate flavour and an attractive juicy appearance. This variety also has good resistance to fusarium wilt. Height and spread: 2m.

Sow seeds 1cm deep in pots or trays of good seed compost at minimum 20C under glass or in a propagator. Protect emerging seedlings from direct sunlight to avoid scorching. Alternatively, only in the warmest areas, sow direct outdoors, 1-2cm deep from mid May.

Pot on individual seedlings into 7.5cm pots of compost and keep barely moist to avoid stem rot. Maintain a temperature of around 20C. Plant 2 plants per growbag under frost free glass for earliest crops, or in frames or cloches. It prefers humus-rich, moist, well drained soil.
