NEW ORLEANS - One taste of the beefy, sweet Creole tomato, and you'll know why New Orleanians look forward to Creole tomato season.

The annual Creole Tomato Festival is a big hit with locals and tourists alike.

Tomato grower Ben Becnel Jr. filled us in on this year's festival activities and talked with us about this year's tomato harvest.

You'll want to head down to the French Market on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. for the fest.
