Irrigation timing, irrigation amount, EC, temperature, leaf and truss pruning can be used to steer plants vegetative (leaf producing) or generative(fruit producing). Apparently a balance is best.

The pictures tell a story too. They are growing 6 single stem plants in a single grow bag. Typical yield for these intensive systems can be 60kg/square meter for a 50 week season. I wouldn't expect to get close to those yields from any heirlooms, but still there is info here that can be useful.
