Are wispy varieties more susceptible to disease?
So all of my tomato plants got at least a touch or so of early blight this year, but it all but destroyed by Anna Russian plants, which are wispy. I had to rip two of them out of the ground once their best fruit ripened, because they were being consumed by the disease. My other plants suffered a bit, but they eventually seemed to over come it and are still fairly healthy (the season is almost over here, they'll all be done before the end of the month I believe).
So I was wondering if wispy variety plants are more susceptible to blight than non-wispy types. Of my eight varieties, the 2 Anna Russians and 1 Anna Banana suffered the worst.
Also, it's possible I gave them too much water (I haven't watered any of my plants for weeks now, and they looked great even after a few 80+ degree days... before I watered them deeply about 1 time per 7 days) so maybe wispy varieties suffer more from wet roots?
