Why do my tomatoes skin look wrinkled?

Hi, i have been having a good growing season here in Pa. with my tomatoes. I have them growing in 5 gallon buckets. Only thing is i just noticed my biggest tomato (about the size of 2 golf balls) the skin is wrinkled. What did i do wrong? Or what do i need to do?

Some varieties have natural "pleats" in their shape so what variety are you growing?

A more detailed description or a photo would be a great help as "skin is wrinkled" can mean different things to different folks. ;)

I googled "mountain fresh tomatoes" and found a photo of the fruits at a commercial site. They look to be a smooth fruit on a hybrid plant, so my own guess would be your skins may be wrinkling from either overwatering or inconsistent watering. Is that a possibility?
