What you see here, is a tomato that has entered the vivipanic phase, that is when, the germination of its seeds begins to occur within the pericarp of the same tomato under conditions that favor it. The nutrients that these seeds receive come from the same fruit...

pericarp [ˈpɛrɪkɑːp] NOUN
botany
the part of a fruit formed from the wall of the ripened o***y.

Viviparity
Among animals, viviparity is development of the embryo inside the body of the parent. This is opposed to oviparity which is a reproductive mode in which females lay developing eggs that complete their development and hatch externally from the mother.
