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 fruit ripens 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!

Review:

Planted these in Oct. of 2018, they are still producing-May 1, 2019. Are best tomatoes I've ever grown. Survived cold nights, wind and heavy rains. Will always have them on my list.

Review:

Started plants in early 2019 from newly ordered packs from Baker. Stated with 5 plants and all cage up very weak and spindly and sickly looking yellow. Stated 5 more same thing. Eventually started ready of pack and all look yellow as sickly. Of the original 10 plants I started only 2 made it to first transplant and were well behind my other varieties.

What are the pros? great flavor!

What are the cons? not robust or productive

Review:

These tomatoes grew terrible for me in 2017. I grew about 20 varieties, all of which were very strong and abundant, except the Creole. From the beginning the plants were leggy and thin, I ended up loosing quite a few before transplant, and since they lacked vigor, I only had one somewhat healthy specimen. The plant did make somewhat of a comeback in strength but only produced TWO tomatoes! Granted, they were super tasty! Maybe Creole is not suited for the pacific northwest. I should ought to give it another try, seeing that only one made it into the test run.

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.

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.
