Default Thorburn's Terra-Cotta color genotype ?

I grow Thorborn’s terra cotta for the first time this summer. I am impressed by the mix of colors of this variety. It has orange color over green and a red blush in the center.

So is this a mix of green flesh (gf) and tangerine (t) ? Does it also have the bicolor (ry) gene causng the red streaks in the center (like in Berkely Tie Dye) ?

Here are some pictures:

First fruit, picked early (and previously tasted by a chicken !!):

A more ripe fruit:
