A large-fruited strawberry with exceptional flavour, 'Chandler' was developed in California in 1983 where it became an incredibly popular commercial variety and was also used in the 'pick your own' market. An early-to mid-season strawberry with exceptional yields. While not all berries are uniform, they are bright red and packed with flavour. Known as the most flavourful large strawberry, this is attributed to the red flesh that forms deep inside the strawberry. Bred for flavour rather than firm flesh and storage - the best way to enjoy these berries is fresh from the garden.
Fertilise strawberry plants in spring by mulching with compost or well-rotted manure. Plant in a mound to improve drainage and water regularly, especially during the growing and fruiting months and during hot, dry weather.
