Can you identify this tomato variety?

A friend gave me three heirloom tomato starts this year. One is Purple Russian, one is something like Yellow Pear, and one is this that I can't recall the name of. I've likely got some time before the fruits are fully ripe, but I'd like to know what I'm looking for as far as color. Knowing what type of tomato it is would seem to be helpful. :)

They're really lovely.. does anyone recognize them?

(These are about cherry-sized and have been the same size for probably a week.)

They do kind of look like Mr. Stripey, including the pictures of green Mr. Stripeys. But, they're still pretty little - maybe cherry-sized, and Mr. Stripey looks like a much larger tomato. It will certainly be interesting to see what they turn into!
