5) Pests/Diseases

Tomatoes are most susceptible to insect pests, especially whiteflies and tomato hornworms.

Late Blight is a type of fungal disease that usually strikes during any time of the growing seasons. It causes grey, moldy spots on fruits and leaves which later turn brownish. The disease spreads and is supported by continuous damp weather. This disease will run until winter, so make sure to destroy all infected plants.

Mosaic Virus causes distortion of leaves and causing the growth of young plants to be twisted and narrow. The leaves also become yellow. Unfortunately, all the plants infected should be destroyed (don’t put them in your compost pile).

Cracking: When the fruit growth is very rapid, the skin will eventually crack. This mostly occurs because of uneven watering or uneven moisture received from weather conditions (very rainy periods mixed along with dry periods). Keep the moisture levels constant with mulching and consistent watering.
