M-111 expected teenage yield

I'm trying to get an idea of what my harvest might look like next year for marketing purposes. My M-111 trees were planted in the spring of 2014. The trees were between 1/2 - 1" caliper then and have done well, with exceptions of course. This year probably about half the trees had fruit. Kinnard's Choice was the only variety to bear last year. Gala's had as many as a dozen apples this fall, with other varieties only having 1 or two. I realize the variety makes a big difference in precocity, but based on the experience out there, what can I expect next year and the year after until these trees reach maturity? I was thinking maybe 1/2 bushel per tree next year, then 1 bushel in 2019, then 3-5 bushels in 2020.
