Deleted a Solution by fields remain and prevent import

I created a solution that included a table with a field xyz_items of type "text".  I imported this solution to a test environment.  I realized this did not give enough space for certain entries, so in the development environment, I deleted the column and created a new column, also named xyz_items of type "multiline text".  I tried to upgrade the solution in the test environment, which failed.  This makes sense based on this link

 

I tried to resolve by deleting the solution in the test environment and re-importing.  I continued to get the same error during import.  Is there any way to "fully" delete the solution with the incorrect field type?  I have resolved the problem in this case by deleting xyz_items and just creating a column called xyz_columns_long, but it'd be nice to be able to keep the same title.

If you imported the solution as Un-Managed in your Test environment then you need to go to the Test environment and delete the Field from the Test environment and then re-import the solution.
