Solstice muskmelon is a large fruited melon that has the look of the old "Eastern" type melons, but offers the full disease package that is found in today's newer hybrids. Solstice produces huge 7 to 9 lb. fruit that have deep sutures and heavy, ropey netting. Big yields and outstanding eating quality have been noted in our test plots. Its disease package includes resistance to Fusarium wilt (races 0, 1 and 2) and Powdery Mildew (races 1 and 2). If your markets still demand deep ribbed melons with heavy netting, then Solstice should be in your planting plans this year.
