Worth the wait - Hopefully

In the next day or so I'll pick my first fruit from a tomato grown in the hothouse I named 'Little Heart' (F1) last year which came from a 'mutant' lot of seeds, supposedly Cuor di Bue. This plant gave small heart shaped fruit last year, with excellent taste, so I decided to grow them again this year, but got a surprise with their size. The fruit seems as if it will grow to about Tennis Ball size, very prolific, so when I get the first fruit it will be taste tested to see if the flavour in these F2 variety has stayed as nice as we remember from last season. I do have four plants of this tomato growing in the garden for comparison on taste and size etc.

Here is a photo from yesterday.
