This is in Buffalo?

I'm in coastal Massachusetts, and I've been picking grape and cherry tomatoes for a few weeks now. No beefsteak tomatoes yet, but a couple of Early Girls and some heirloom type (Merlot?) have ripened. The little tomatoes have been really good, but the larger tomatoes have been unremarkable; not a lot of flavor ... kind of watery. Maybe they'll get better - the weather has been rainy and not very hot this July.

I've had some very good yellow grape tomatoes that look nothing like what they are supposed to be. I'd guess the plant was mismarked. They are almost a translucent yellow, and get deeper yellow, almost orange as they get really ripe. All of them are spherical, from about 3/4" to 1" in diameter. Anybody have a guess what they really are?
