As the days of summer wane and near the colder months of the year, Pure Flavor® is making sure consumers across North America are still able to enjoy a fresh taste of paradise with their new Solara™ Mini Melons

There's nothing quite like sitting on a beach in the warm sun while sipping on a cool drink with your toes in the sand. Of course, not every day can be a beach day — there's always something to do: rushing the kids to school, managing a hectic work schedule, or tidying up the house after dinner. Thankfully, there's a simple way to escape from the weekday grind. All you need to do is stop at your local grocery store and let the refreshing flavor of Solara™ Mini Melons take you to your own personal paradise.

Mildly cool, sweet, and juicy, Solara™ personal-sized melons are sustainably grown in greenhouses that use just the right amount of light, nutrition, and water to deliver the same sweet tastefully tropical™ flavor 365 days a year.

Tiffany Sabelli, Director of Sales, says consumers are embracing the new, unique product that gives them “me time, anytime.”

“Consumers are demanding convenience when it comes to fresh, sweet snacks. Solara™ Mini Melons are exactly what they’ve been searching for: your own personal paradise in the palm of your hand,” said Sabelli. “It’s a truly unique product that creates an equally unique experience, which, after many years of research and development, is something we are very proud to offer.”

In fact, the team at Pure Flavor® spent eight years developing Solara™ Mini Melons. According to Sabelli, the grower took no shortcuts when it came to perfecting the groundbreaking product.

“We knew that we had to get everything absolutely right,” said Sabelli. “Once we conducted extensive trials and found the ideal growing formula, it was clear to everyone who tasted the final result that it was time to introduce the first personal-sized, sustainable, greenhouse grown melon to the world.”

As the first commercially available greenhouse grown, personal-sized melons, they are naturally a more sustainable product due to the high efficiency of Pure Flavor’s advanced greenhouse technology. Plus, they are the perfect size for single-serving snacks, so there’s no waste.

During the research and development process, the grower partnered with Cornell University. That expertise equipped Pure Flavor® with valuable insights that have helped maximize yield, ensure consistency in all seasons, and achieve the tastefully tropical™ flavor that is quickly earning Solara™ Mini Melons a reputation.

Not only are they the perfect size for single serving, handheld portions, but they also offer an unparalleled versatility that complements a variety of breakfast, salad, appetizer, and dinner recipes.

The sweet, mild and tropical flavor goes well with a range of other ingredients that consumers can mix and match in all their favorite recipes. Try them with mint, prosciutto, cardamom, pistachios, croissants, and camembert cheese for a few flavor pairings that will make your tastebuds come alive with every bite.

Chris Veillon, Chief Marketing Officer, says the brand has been working with talented content creators from across North America to help show off the versatility of the melons.

“There are endless ways to enjoy the flavor and convenience of these tropical melons. We wanted to work with people who could bring their own diverse perspectives into the kitchen and create something fresh with Solara™ Mini Melons,” explained Veillon. “Each recipe is as unique as the person who created it, which shows just how personal these personal-sized melons can be!”

In only ten minutes, you can make yourself a delightful Tropical Melon Salsa with Pie Chips that can be enjoyed all-in-one and on-the go. No bowl required! Lauren Brittain, creator of the delicious recipe, says that Solara™ Mini Melons are a wonder to work with in the kitchen and enjoy with her family.

“I love the quality of these mini melons. They were fresh and delicious, and my kids loved the size,” said Brittain. “The flavor is perfect for desserts and fresh summer recipes, sweet or savory.”

For a quick, healthy breakfast on busy weekday mornings, a tasty Melon and Pistachio Breakfast Bowl is the way to go. If you’re looking for something fresh to serve dinner guests at your next party, you could impress them with Salmon and Melon Salad and then follow up with decadent Island Ice Cream Bowls for dessert.

With a greenhouse grown ingredient as versatile as Solara™ Mini Melons, consumers can enjoy paradise in the palm of their hand this fall and winter.
