A trend in the fresh produce market is personal-sized fruit, and Solitaire fits the trend perfectly. Medium-sized, spreading vines produce good yields of 3-1/2 to 4 lb., round fruit that have a dark green rind with thin light green stripes. When you cut open these little beauties you’ll find a deep red flesh that is crisp, fine grained and sweet. The rind thickness is thin but is hard enough to hold up during harvest. Solitaire is the perfect watermelon variety for individual servings.
