I grew several in 2010 and they were absolutely awesome. Never thought a grape or cherry tomato could taste so good! And pretty nice plants. Relatively prolific. Did not crack. Nice crisp bites. Friends say it was like eating candy.
BUT!!!! I grew many more in 2011. In many different settings and packets from two different companies (Jung and T.Tomatoes again), and they were certainly NOT THE SAME!. It lacked the flavor. The flavor wasn't there and my friends said the same. It wasn't the same hybrid.
I changed from positive to neutral on the rating. Growing something else next year, looking for the best grape...
