Default Name This Tomato In Three Pictures !

I know, some of you are going to say "Cannot be done" it needs a tag, a birth certificate and Social Security number.
Well, I am not looking to a positive identification either. But maybe somebody out there can narrow it down.
Here is the story:
Last November I saw a tomato seedling ( with about 4 to 5 leaves ) growing between some cinder blocks. So I took it out , potted and cared for it for almost 5 months.
Since I had just moved to this place and there was no vegetable garden, I wondered where the seed came from. Probably the previous resident/owner was growing it in a container. ??

DESCRIPTION:
very bushy indet, RL.
When I cut the fruit , I tasted , liked it and said to myself " Got to save some seeds "
Surprise ! I could only find 5 seeds in one half of it covered with green gel. ( I had already eaten the other half ),

The Taste: was creamy, balanced and complex. I bet , this being the first fruit might not be a good representative.

here are the pictures of: MYSTERY
1- showing top ; 2- showing bottom , 3 - cut

The design on the plate makes the little one look like it is bleeding ketchup. Other than that, I don't remember growing a tomato with seed cells that look like that.

It would be mine to.
The reasoning is it is the most popular in the store bought plants and what are the odds of an Heirloom fanatic moving in a place that another fanatic moved out of.

VC Scott, and Worth, Nice try.
The fruit shape and color is similar to CP.
If not CP, then it must something in the darks category.

But "Green Gel" probably deviates from CP. I cut one earlier , it had green stripe in the flesh. It looked like Captain Lucky.

More fruits, more pictures to follow, until we get to the bottom of this
