From what I understand String is a varchar and the text(s) reflect their counterparts (in MySQL at least) MySQL Docs

That's correct. String is varchar 255 and the rest of what elite123 said.

@elite123, @ShawnMcCool : thanks!

In case of storing product description, along with their specification such as Size, weight, colour, I'm saving it as Text. Shouldn't be a problem , right?

If you're not going to have a massive amount of products, then it doesn't really matter. I'd generally consider the size requirements of each individual field while designing the schema.
