Thanks, I think what I need to start doing is to make a list of properties that can help narrow it down.
The tomatoes in my pic (other than the one with the triangulated bottom which is a different variety) have an oblate sphere shape - they are round but squashed top to bottom. But some tomatoes develop wrinkles due to lack of water so it's hard to tell. But there is a tendency for a very large number of tomatoes in my garden to be perfectly smooth, and they are oblate spheres but taste-wise, some are tart and sweet, others are watery. The watery ones are more likely Butpee's Big Boy (a beefsteak), but the tart ones more likely something else - perhaps Better Boy. I'll keep working on this - it's important. But the smaller tomato with a triangulated bottom is very uniform species - all same size and shape. So I wonder which species - I was going to say Early Girl but I don't think so. So where aer the Early Girl tomatoes - I'll have to keep working on this. I think I need to take my time answering this. Sorry if I take your time too.
Better Boy is definitely one you would get in a grocery store or a stand near a grocery store - your typical tomato. That makes it likely
