Size is mostly related to the availability of substrate/nutrients. The more substrate/nutrients, the larger the shrooms.

Also pin set size is key. On an identical casing a pin set with many shrooms will produce smaller fruits, while a pin size of a few shrooms will produce larger fruits.

Hydration is also a key. I have seen fruits open up to maturity while quite small due to a dry casing or environment.
