Default Burgundy Traveler = Large Cherry?

I have been patiently awaiting the ripening of my first homegrown tomato of the season. I just spotted it today. It is on the plant that is supposed to be Burgundy Traveler. I seem to remember reading somewhere that BT was supposed to produce 6-10 oz. tomatoes. What I have is more like a large cherry. I was just wondering if these tomatoes are supposed to be this size or do they start out small and get bigger or is it likely that I have the wrong seed. If it is a mixup, I guess it was done by the person who sent the seed (not sure who it was) because the only other cherry I had seeds for this year was Rose Quartz Multi-Flora and this ain't it.

I have not grown Burgundy Traveler myself but it usually work the other way around. The first few fruits are the largest and they get smaller as the season progresses.

I've grown Burgundy Traveller several times. It should be the size of a baseball-softball, deep maroon pink.
