Experience the delight of homegrown strawberries with the Ruby June Strawberry Plants, nurtured using organic methods at the Farm on Central. Perfectly designed by nature for fall planting, these plants promise an early and bountiful harvest the very next spring.

Ruby June strawberries are a newer variety known for their exceptional sweetness and vibrant, deep red color. These strawberries are praised for their larger size and excellent flavor profile, making them a popular choice for both fresh consumption and culinary uses such as smoothies, desserts, and snacks. Ruby June strawberries are particularly well-suited for growth in the MidAtlantic region and demonstrate strong marketable yields comparable to established varieties like Chandler and Camarosa.

Developed at Lassen Canyon Nursery, Ruby June strawberries exhibit a balance of high-quality fruit and disease resistance, ensuring consistent production and minimal losses due to culls. They have been described as the "Honeycrisp of strawberries" due to their remarkable taste and appeal. These berries are also a good source of vitamin C and dietary fiber, adding nutritional value to their already impressive attributes​

Key Features:

  1. Springtime Harvest: Plant in the cool embrace of fall and eagerly await a fresh burst of strawberries come spring. No more waiting for years or seasons on end; the Annual bed strawberry system brings berries to your table in just a matter of months.

  2. Luscious & Large Berries: Forget the small, underwhelming berries. Ruby June strawberries stand out with their impressive size and firmness, making them perfect for fresh eating, desserts, or preserving.

  3. Good Flavor: One of the top varieties in our trials, but not quite as sweet as Chandler. Firm berries don't break down or go soft quickly.

  4. Grown at the Farm on Central: Nurtured with care, these plants are cultivated using organic methods at the Farm on Central. You can trust the quality and authenticity of every plant you receive.

  5. Optimal Spacing for Growth: For the best results and optimal berry yield, plant your Ruby June Strawberry Plants at a spacing of 12 x 12 inches. This ensures ample room for growth, light, and air circulation, leading to healthier plants and sweeter fruits.

  6. Garden and Culinary Versatility: Whether you're looking to enjoy them fresh, in a classic strawberry shortcake, a refreshing smoothie, or in jams and preserves, Ruby June strawberries are the ideal choice for all your culinary endeavors.
