Celebrity Tomato - Knowledgebase Question

Valley Village, Ca
Question by timecritical

I have planted and enjoyed Celebrity tomatos for many years. This year's plant (lycopersicon lypersicum) is producing a very nice and large fruit with many more on the way. However, the fruit is a deep orange and not fully ripe. Is this normal, or did I get a different variety?
Thank you.

It sure doesn't sound like a Celebrity to me! A similar sized tomato, but one that is a tangerine-orange when mature, is Mountain Gold. I wonder if the transplants were mislabeled or the seeds were misidentified? I'm sure they're tasty, just not the red that you were expecting.
