Tomato Varieties for Louisiana 

Indeterminate Varieties
Indeterminate varieties of tomatoes, once planted, will grow and produce fruit until they're killed by frost.
Big Beef,  Pink Girl and Monte Carlo.

Determinate Varieties
Determinate varieties of tomato plants produce a limited amount of fruit and reach a fixed, compact height
Celebrity, Olympic and Spitfire.

Heat-Tolerant Varieties
There are certain types of tomatoes that were designed to have a heat-set genetic makeup, meaning they are extraordinarily tolerant of heat and dry spells.
Sun Leaper, Florida 91 and Solar Set.

Cherry Varieties
Cherry varieties are also an excellent choice for Louisiana. They tend to produce fruit quickly, before the hottest months of the summer kick in, but also stand up to high temperatures nicely and are productive regardless of the heat as long as they're watered regularly.
Super Sweet 100, Sweet Chelsea and Cherry Grande.
