Answer: I found several tomato varieties described as banana pepper-like in shape: 'Howard German,' ' Polish Giant Paste,' 'Sausage,' 'Super Italian Paste,' and 'Spitz.' I found all these varieties in the Tomato Growers Supply catalog (1-888-478-7333 or customer service at 941-768-1119) You might ask them if they know the origins of the varieties.
Hope this helps.
(By the way, if you think you have a special tomato, you might contact Burpee directly to see if they would be interested in your variety--which has surely changed at least slightly now that you've been saving and growing your own seed for several years. Contact the customer service dept. (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask to contact their horticulturists about this.)
