The Celebrity Tomato was an All-America Selections (AAS) award winner in 1984. Because it is a determinate (bushy) plant, it can be easy to manage in smaller spaces. So if you are thinking about growing tomatoes in containers this variety is a good one to consider. It has good disease resistance.
The designation F1-Hybrid tells you this variety has been cross-produced from two distinct "pure" tomatoes. Because 'Sugary' is an F1, or first-generation hybrid, it should have better-than-average vigor and give more uniform and bigger yields. But if you save seeds for next year you'll probably not be able to recognize, or like, the tomatoes produced.
Planted on my deck in a 10-inch clay pot, it was a high-yielding producer for me and provided large flavorful fruit during the harvest season. The Celebrity is a good, all-purpose variety that grows well in almost every region under many different growing conditions.
