I've grown Mesabi strawberries along with Winona strawberries for the past few years. I get lots of large beautiful berries. I have a 16 ft row each of Mesabi & Winona berries and between the two I got 47# last summer. They were pretty much equal in production, the Mesabi came first and as they were finishing up the Winona started. Very pleased with this berry, it freezes well, tastes great fresh or frozen and makes awesome jam.
