awesome berries
Reviewed By: Tammy (Billings, MO)
We planted 2 of these spring of 2010. This year (June 2011) we're pulling about 2 quarts a week of large flavorful berries with small seeds and most importantly no thorns--kids love to pick 'em! I wish we'd planted more and plan on adding more of these to our patch next spring!

Best of all the berries in size, very large. Very cold hardy and spreads quick, great taste. Not offered often. This is a must buy.
