Seems to me, like taste should be the primary selection criteria in every generation after the F1.

The way that I would approach this project, would be to get seed from the F1, and then plant about 100 F2 plants, and select among them for plants that have both the taste and the size that you are looking for. That way, the project will be essentially done in one growing season.

Don't have the room? Place the plants an inch apart . That will l fit 100 of them into an 8 feet row.
