Hippie Zebra Tomato: lack of growth

Hey guys, so I've got an odd issue. My hippie zebra tomato plant keeps riping tomatoes at the size of a quarter. They're like grape tomatoes... but this is suppose to be atleast a med. size tomato producer.Image

Re: Hippie Zebra Tomato: lack of growth

Hmm.... Two reasons I can think of for this happening are --
(1) you are growing this plant in a small container and fruit size miniaturization is taking place
(2) the seeds you planted came from a Hippie Zebra fruit that had set as result of accidental bee cross, most likely with a cherry tomato. Therefore, this is an F1 cross (Hippie Zebra x ???)

How do they taste?

Haven't tried yet. Im going to pick it off here in a day or two. Try it right of off the vine. It's in a tote. 2.5cu of soil and it doesn't share this space with any other plant.
