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.
Early season. Ruby June produces a large, moderately firm, conical fruit. The fruit is red in color and has an exceptional flavor.
Fronteras is a large vigorous plant that produces early, large, moderately firm fruit. Fruit has excellent color, low cull rates and good flavor.
McNitt Growers start booking plug orders in June. We encourage growers to be proactive and place their orders early. Plugs are typically read to ship from the end of August through the first part of October. We work with growers of all sizes, but we do require a minimum order of 250 plants of a single variety.

Strawberry Fertilizer Information
McNitt Growers is proud to offer Plant Marvel Laboratories, Inc. water soluble fertilizers. Plant Marvel offers a wide variety of complete fertilizer for all your crop needs.
For strawberry growers, either 12-5-19 or 14-5-22 has been the preferred formulas for their strawberry production program. Both formulas provide a complete nutritional package in a single bag. This simplifies a growers’ life.
Growers can be provided a week by week recommendation of fertilizer to apply. This recommendation is based off the number of plants in a field and the required amount of nutrients a strawberry plant requires at each stage of the growing cycle. Minor adjustments may be needed, based off petiole sampling.
