Jos,

Mesh  is not an option for ParametricPlot3D ( check
Options[ParametricPlot3D])
However we have

sphere={Sin[v]Cos[u],Sin[v]Sin[u],Cos[v]};

Meshed:
(Evaluate shows ParametricPlot what it is dealing with)

ParametricPlot3D[Evaluate[sphere],{u,0,2Pi},{v,0,Pi},PlotPoints->50];

Unmeshed:

ParametricPlot3D[{Sin[v]Cos[u],Sin[v]Sin[u],Cos[v],
EdgeForm[]},{u,0,2Pi},{v,
0,Pi},PlotPoints->50];

Or equivalently:

ParametricPlot3D[Evaluate[Append[sphere,EdgeForm[]]],{u,0,2Pi},{v,0,Pi},
PlotPoints->50]
