It's crunchy more towards the skin, the interior is fairly normal. I ate another one and was the same as the first, next one I will wait a lot longer. Maybe cut in slices would be better, so you are not left with the whole crunchy skin at the end. It certainly has a lot of sweetness however, just like green tiger.

I usually cut mine in half.

Otherwise there is a tendency for juice to spray everywhere when eating.

Here are a couple pictures of Green Bee. Grown in an 18-20 gallon pot and very productive. It's been tough to narrow down when to pick. I'm now letting the fruit crack on the vine and heal over. Even then when picked, they last a long time on the counter.

As Fred has said, this is a chef's tomato. Lasts forever and still maintains the crunch of an apple. Not sweet, not tart, somewhere in between.

I'm growing Madera and this has some of the same qualities. Thanks Fred.

Today’s crop! I have to admit, this is one interesting tomato. It is surprisingly mild in taste and I’m curious to see how it tastes oven roasted or sautéed. It really does have incredible shelf life. I just picked these today. And they stay so crunch! Really nice tomato. Thanks Fred! By the way, these are multiple stems, but one of them was loaded. I bunched them together for the photo, freshly rinsed off!

Those have a nice ripe color. Glad they made it to ripe in your neck of the woods.

Green Bee in a tomato salad at a home-town restaurant we work closely with.

Green Bee adds color, flavor and texture diversity to the salad. The other secret sauce in this salad -- Tangerine Gem Marigold (just a sprinkle).
