Default Anyone grow copper river?

I grew copper river this year, intrigued by the description at John Scheepers. I got to finally try a few this week. They were sooooo sweet! I swear it was like eating a sunsugar cherry tomato, only giant size with more meat. I have never tasted a tomato this sweet before. I have tasted ones that had some sweetness, but no zip, kinda one dimensional and not my faves, but this was like a great sweet cherry tomato, overwhelming, powerfully sweet. I know I traded seeds to one other tomatovillian, and was just wondering if others have had the same experience with this one? I'm trying to figure if this "new to me" tomato is supposed to taste like this, or did I do something to it that caused it? Cause if I did, I'd like to do it again
