Full Frontal Lobe Tomato Mystery

I don’t know where these mysterious lobed tomatoes came from

Whatever kind of tomato this is, it’s not a yellow pear like the note I wrote myself said (drinking and gardening is harder than it looks).

I must have crossbred something, but I’m not sure what.

Anyone have an idea who the parents of these lobey tomatoes might be?

Update: July 10, 2020 – Turns out the tomatoes are an Genoa Italian variety known as Costoluto. Here’s the fruit after it ripened.

Costaluto Genovese Totmato, large and lobely.
