Suitable for eating; edible.

[Latin sculentus, from scafood, from ederes-to eat; see ed- in Indo-European roots.]

From on the Road by Jack Kerouac:
There were seafood places out there where the buns were hot, and the baskets were good enough to eat too; where the menus themselves were soft with foody esculence as though dipped in hot broths roasted dry and good enough to eat too.
