Great Georgia tomato!!!

This was my BEST producing tomato, last year. Even when temps were over 90, there was very little blossom drop. While tomatoes like Paul Robeson, Marianna’s Peace, and some of the other heirlooms I’ve grown go into the "best tasting” category, they also can be much too fragile for our hot, humid Southern summers. I am, most definitely, ordering this one, again!

From Kathryn | January 01, 2022


Got here and was pretty and green a lot bigger than I thought it would be

From Harold | June 17, 2021

So far, so good

Out of the 5 plants received in this shipment, this is one of two that might have a chance. Looks good so far.

Creole Tomato... hot weather tollerant

I am so glad to have found GrowJoy and the tomato plants that will preform in Georgia! It's so hot here in the summer my tomatoes get cooked on the vine! Now I am looking forward to plants that will withstand all this southern heat! Thanks GrowJoy luv yr packaging too!!

It arrived in good shape

My heirloom tomato plant arrived the other day, I was worried how it would arrive such a small plant being shipped by truck. It arrived in one piece and after watering it it's growing nicely, it is sitting on my window ledge, inside my kitchen, it has grown nicely just after a few days, I will be buying a new pot this week and am already looking forward to enjoying tomatos in a few months.

Nice Plants

Plants arrived in excellent condition. I had also ordered plants from another source and was very disappointed in their plant shipping packaging.

From William | April 12, 2019

Crazy about Creole!!

I was very impressed with how healthy this plant arrived. When it was planted it didn’t show signs of stress at all. It perked right up and is growing beautifully! Can’t wait to try the tomatoes!! Thanks Growjoy .com!!

Best Service

I ordered 5 Heirloom plants of different varieties. The Creole plant was stressed from delayed UPS shipping in unseasonably hot weather and died. GrowJoy quickly replaced the plant. The replacement plant is currently growing and looks great. Can't comment on the tomato because it will be weeks before it matures but GrowJoy service is exceptional. The packaging for shipping live plants is unique but can't expect all plants to arrive alive in the given condition. Six star rating for a seller that produces live plants that are difficult or impossible to purchase from local vendors

From John | June 01, 2018

Healthy Tomato plant

I was very happy to receive this tomato plant. It was carefully packaged and the soil was still moist. I was impressed with how thick the stem was and how green the leaves were. I put this Creole tomato in my aeroponics system, which meant I had to wash away all the soil. I was really impressed with how long and healthy-looking the roots were. I was worried the shock of transplanting to a new growing system would hurt the plant, but it didn't. There are no signs of stress and it still looks very vibrant. I can't wait to try the tomatoes!

Creole Tomato Plants

The plants arrived at on the first day of the 'ship by' window, looking great! They were bigger than I anticipated, and made the transition to my garden very quickly. Can't wait to taste the tomatoes!

From Michael | May 21, 2015

My experience with GrowJoy

First your plants are in excellent condition, most importantly they arrive when you promise they will arrive and they are in great condition and don't look like dried up cinders. The Creole Heirloom Tomato plants which I purchase have excellent flavor and when stuffed with jumbo lump crab meat is second to none. Keep up the great work!

From John | May 21, 2015

Very Pleased

Tomato plants were delivered very healthy and are beautiful! We ordered the plants a little late in the season for live plants to be shipped but they arrived in great condition. I will definitely be buying from GrowJoy again.

From Debbie | June 23, 2013

Creole Tomato

I was given very good service and received healthy plants.

From Betty | May 04, 2013

Classic Tomato Flavor

This tomato has that classic tomato flavor that keeps you coming back for tomatoes. It has a soft skin, so as soon as it is ripe, eat it up! It held up to the weather here in South Florida-full sun, drought, downpours. It looked ragged but made it. I like this tomato for the nostalgia of Louisiana and the South. Yes, you could find a tomato with more flavor, more prolific producer,larger tomatoes. The shipping and packaging from GrowJoy is always great! My plants have always arrived safe and alive. And in a timely manner.

From anonymous | March 29, 2013
