What the heck did this???
Don't spend much time on this forum, probably should. I have grown tomatoes for a long time and am familiar with all the common maladies.
I visited my son in Chicago. He asked my horticultural advice on this malady and I must admit I came up totally blank, never having seen this before. Blindly would suspect some fungal infection, but what?.
The pictures are of a 'Roma' fruit. It is close (actually too close at 3 to 3-1/2' away) from an 'Early Girl." The Early Girl is as healthy as can be with no trace of insect or disease problems and is producing well. Actually, the Roma is producing well, too, but is often blighting back with the same distress as in the pictures.
Anyone seen this? Help out a fellow horticulturist! Thanks in advance for any ideas.
