For gardeners and cooks in Louisiana, summer is not summer without Creole tomatoes. Although relatively late to ripen, those loyal to Creole tomatoes are willing to wait. Creole tomatoes can tolerate heat and humidity, ripening into a meatier-than-average tomato with outstanding flavor. Developed at LSU for warm, humid areas, the indeterminate vines delight gardeners with high yields of juicy fruit that resists cracking. Vines are vigorous, so use tall cages.

Resistant to fusarium wilt and alternaria stem canker.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Creole Tomato is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased 18 of these Bonnie Plants Creole tomatoes in early April. They have been in containers now for around 2 1/2months and are really putting out the fruit. The flavor is unbelievable.! I live in North East Louisiana and this variety is by far the best performing tomato I have grown. I have seen no signs of disease and have had no pest problems. I am extremely happy that I found these and will have them in the garden next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased 2 plants. One still has tomatoes & the other had none. I don't know why. They are side by side. These were the best tomatoes I've ever eaten. Living in New Orleans & I get Creoles all of the time. It's the first time I had plants. Thank You Bonnie Plants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than fresh-grown San Marzano tomatoes. I've eaten San Marzano tomatoes in Italy and they are very tasty, but Creole has them beat in flavor and texture. It's arguable these are the world's best cultivar of tomato.
