Red 'n' green tomato?

I'm looking for the name (and ideally, seeds) of a type of tomato I ate in Barcelona a couple of years ago. It was quite large, round, and when fully ripe, still had areas of green and red flesh. Not striped, but rounded blotches of colour throughout. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Googling has got me nowhere.
Thanks

There seem to be no end of tomato enthusiasts on rec.gardens.edible so I am crossposting your enquiry there. Maybe someone there knows about the tomato of which you speak?
Failing that, perhaps posting to a spanish group might work, e.g., soc.culture.spanish or whatever it might be called. Google can help you with the name of the group.

Failing info from growers, you might e-mail some of the specialist "tomato seed" sites. I just looked a several that had many, many varieties, but unless you know the name, they'll be hard to find with normal searches.

Mr. Stripey is one of many. Tigerella is striped, but it's orange and red. Look at Seed Savers Exchange web site. This web site may have some green striped varieties: http://www.tomatofest.com/home.html

I've been through a few heirloom tomato categories, but every red and green variety I have found has been striped. The tomato I'm looking for is not striped; the variegations in the flesh are in rounded shapes.

I looked in Thompson and Morgan catalog and they had a brandywine that had green and red areas, and I've seen some that have green and red inside when sliced on some web pages this year. So maybe it may show up. I've also had some tomatoes, just general run of the mill tomatoes which were green and red inside and more green outside than red, and they're much sweeter than they are later when fully ripe.
I was being talked to when I first posted the Mr. Stripey and failed to read what you'd written above thoroughly. sorry 'bout that.
If you recall where you ate the tomatoes, maybe you can write and direct your question to the cooks and ask if they know what they are.
Good luck in your search!
