Black Krim

celeste(7a)July 11, 2011

Help, my wonderful Black Krim is loaded with tomatoes (still green) and it just croaked. One day it was fine and the next it was all wilted. Any ideas about that greatly appreciated.

Most often when a plant wilts ASAP and the foliage is still green the culprit is a disease called Bacterial Wilt.

There is an easy way to diagnose it if you still have stems of the plant that are alive. Just Google Tomato Bacterial Wilt and read about taking a piece of the stem and placing it in a glass of water and looking for the streaming of bacteria as seen by a milky cloud.

That's my best guess and I'm sure that others might have other suggestions.

Yesterday it was still green, but leaves rolled. Today it is all brown and I just took all the green fruit off. Boy, I hate to lose that plant. It was going great guns.
