I just got back from New Orleans where they make reference to Creole 
tomatoes. are they called that for being grown in that part of the 
country or is it a certain variety? I'm currently growing a variety 
called Creole and was wondering if they were the same. I'm also growing 
Arkansas Traveler, Thessaloniki and Aunt Ginny. all produced heavily. 
noticed w/ Aunt Ginny to have blossom end rot and cracking problems while 
the others were unaffected. after almost a year, my paste tomato vines 
were looking tired and I finally pulled them out but I was amazed to find 
that 2 vines continued to produce the entire time and w/ enough fruit to 
make fresh pasta sauce to keep my husband and I happy.
