as to sweetness, texture and overall ranking. They were then
questioned on how often they eat grape tomatoes both in season
and year round. The participates were asked what factor was
most important in selecting grape tomatoes and if color played
an important part of their decision in purchasing them. Finally,
they were asked which of these varieties of grape tomatoes
they would purchase if commercially available.
