We received this variety from a donor from Georgia who reported that the seeds trace back to the late 1700s. We have yet to verify this amazing heritage, however, we have verified the amazing potential of this wonderful indeterminate variety. Medium sized fruits ripen to a nice bright red color. Yields are large and production lasts late into the season. The flavor has just the right blend of sweet and tart--like a good old heirloom tomato should!

What are the pros? Wonderful flavor, sets in heat

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew 1 of these for 1st time this Spring. Performed well & had a great tomato taste. N Texas heat & moisture extremes can be very harsh on tomato plants, so many of us rip out plants in June & put in new ones for the Fall garden. I planted 5 of these in late June. The plants have set an average amount of fruit, which is significant since fruit-set here in July, August, and beyond, can be a true problem due to both day and night temps being too high. CO has done quite well in this regard. And the tomatoes that we are now eating, while being a little smaller & more varied in size than the Spring crop, still have that marvelous red tomato flavor. While other varieties have set fruit, the Creole plants have set the most and are ripening before all others. This is currently the mainstay tomato variety in the garden, beating out Solar Flair, Lg Barred Boar, and Nyagous. Love this variety and will grow next year.

What are the pros? flavor, meaty

What are the cons? na

Review:

Creole Original tomatoes grew well, and were so tasty! Plant was not needing much for fertilizer and made a healthy semi determinate plant that ripened at least 6 - 10 pounds 'handful' round tomatoes just like the photo here.

What are the pros? Great flavor. Easy to grow.

What are the cons? Moderately low production.

Review:

These are one of the best tomatoes I've ever tasted. They have a strong 'tomato' taste which is what I prefer. They weren't as productive as most of the other varieties and horn worms ruined half of them. This is the first year I've planted these ( I trial 2 to 3 New varieties every year along with my staple varieties). Now that I am more familiar with them I can adjust to accommodate with next year's planting. These will be added to my staples because the flavor and texture are hard to beat.

What are the pros? Vigor, Lots of Tomatoes, Large

What are the cons? Cracks

Review:

I believe this is a common tomato that you'd see in Louisiana. So we tried it and it was a vigorous and quick to fruit tomato. Common to the tomatoes that you'll see in Louisiana the tomato easily cracks. The other varieties nearby (4 other varieties) did not crack.

What are the pros? none yet

What are the cons? weak seedlings

Review:

These were recommended to me from a friend who said Creole wasn't bothered by hot weather. However, of all the tomato seedlings this year, we had fabulous luck with every variety except Creole. Same soil, light, fertilizer, etc. but most of these were too weak to bother with. I have 2 in the garden, the 2 strongest of the ones I kept so we shall see. They're stunted in their growth compared to our other plants but I'll wait on my final verdict until I've tasted any fruit from this plant. If it sets fruit. There are some flowers so I remain hopeful.
