Unblemished tomatoes on plants with Blight

lori_ny(5)September 2, 2009

About 50% of my tomatoes on the plants have been killed by the Late Blight fungus.

If I pick all the tomatoes that have no blemishes from the late bight, will they still develop it if I ripen them in my house?

I have never had this happen before:( I always get the usual blight and my plants defoliate 75% by frost but the fruits have never been affected.

You can try that. But likely the tomatoes are already infected but won't show the damage for several days.

I've been doing just that. Some ripen OK before the blight spots get too big and some don't. Today I made roasted tomatoes to freeze, by cutting out the blight spots on the ripest ones and roasting with garlic and herbs. I salvaged at least a little of my harvest that way (though I would normally be getting tomatoes for another 6 weeks or so, and I may have 3 days left if I am lucky.)
