(really 4 and a half stars as explained below, but that option isn't available) It's a hard tomato, which is probably why it ships well. Almost too firm, but not quite. Good disease resistance (outlasted the other grape tomatoes by over a month) Most were very sweet and flavorful, though I needed to let them completely ripen on the vine (if they detach when gently pulled, they're ready, otherwise not). Even so, a few weren't sweet or flavorful (to me). Still, most were more than good enough to make up for that. I give them an A-, and will grow them again.
