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 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
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.
