The variety Creole was developed in Louisiana. It's an open pollinated
variety with pretty good resistance for fusarium and blossom end rot. It
does well in hot, humid climates such as the Gulf Coast. I've eaten them in
Louisana and they were terrific--sweet and tangy at the same time. But
everytime I've grown them in Atlanta I'm a bit disappointed in the's OK but not as memorable as the ones I remember.
