Tree Tomato - Fruit at last!

I picked the first 3 ripe Tree Tomato's today.
They were small, but perfectly ripened and suddenly I was craving an open faced tomato sandwich!
I cut into one...it was quite seedy, but very juicy
This is the fruit of the 'Big Early' tomato's that came with the Tree Tomato's
Less seeds, but just as juicy
So I did a taste test...both sliced on Rye with a bit of butter, salt and pepper
Delicious!!
So while the Tree Tomato's didn't come through for me with it's claims of tomato's "over 1 foot all around", "up to 60 lbs of extra large tomatoes per plant", and "grows up to 8 feet tall", I found the small tomato's delicious . And while they didn't live up to the claims,
I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt because I had trouble with damping off in the spring and had to start over - they were smaller than the other tomato's when they were put outside.
Would I plant them again? Yes, but I won't go looking for them.
