Different Shapes and Colours

I've got a seed envelope here with quite a few seeds that I received last year from a forum member marked as Cuor di Bue, but these seeds threw a mystery lot of tomatoes last season and none were Cuor di Bue. From the 6 or so seedlings grown, I know of several fruit shapes and colours coming from those plants. Some fruit was a red medium size heart and heavy ribbed, some small heart shaped in Burgundy and one I grew here which was a small red heart, which I'm calling Little Heart.
In the coming months, I'll be growing about a dozen of these plants in the hothouse in an effort to see what other shapes and colours I can get from these mystery tomatoes. The little heart shaped tomatoes I grew do show some resemblance to Cuor di Bue, but just in miniature.
