This would have to do with the plant putting all of its energy into the initial crop of fruit. It exhausts its stores of nutrients and energy and produces smaller fruit after because of it. Try giving the plant a light dressing of fertilizer while it is in its initial flush and this should help the plant build up its stores and produce well after that.
