Default Teach me about strawberries...

A group of us at work want to plant some strawberries. None of us have raised strawberries before. The Gurney's whopper has us interested purely from a large size and the picture of the child eating it like an apple. What do you guys suggest we use for varieties in NE Iowa? Any keys to the success? Should we look at June bearers?

There is a newly introduced berry called Archer. It is a huge berry being offer by Krohne Plant Farms from Hartford, Mich. Glad to see a fellow Iowan on here.
