Chandler Strawberry Farming in Kenya

These early mid-season June-bearing strawberries are a good choice for fresh pickings of homegrown, bright red, flavorful fruit. Firm, large and beautifully shaped, these berries are especially appealing in fresh fruit trays.

The vigorous, high-yielding, June-bearing Chandler strawberry plants produce very desirable strawberries.  Chandler strawberries are very large, firm, and produce early-season to mid-season.  The strawberries vary from being long and wedge-shaped to large and conical.  They are a brilliant red color, glossy, and have an exceptional flavor profile.

The Chandler variety has gained prominence among many farmers in Kenya due to its fast maturing rate, superior pest and disease resistance traits and low cost production process. On average strawberry takes three months to mature.

Chandler strawberries, however, are susceptible to root rot and absolutely must have well-drained soil and be planted properly.  The preferred soil pH is about 6, and additional watering is needed when rainfall is not sufficient. The mulching helps to suppress weeds and retains moisture around the berries.

They are, however, tolerant of gray mold.
