something is affecting my tomato, If I were to guess I would say some sort of virus (to me it looks similar to a mathematic equation, perhaps a fractal). Anyway here are the pics.

my guess would be stink bugs. I'm seeing a lot of them around my tomatoes and while I don't have many red one's yet, the green ones look mottled like that.

Okay to eat.

Agree with Christine.

The area under the yellow spots should have dead white tissue since the stinkbugs inject a toxin that kills cells.

If you want to see more pictures go to Google, select IMAGES and enter Cloudy Spot, which is the proper name for this condition, or stinkbug bites if that doesn't work.

Scroll down until you come across stinkbugs. They have a picture of the damage.

Well I'll be....after you guys/gals advice I looked my plant over very carefully, and there he was. Mr. Stinkbug.

He wanted to pose for a photograph, but his agent decided he was running late for his engagement in pandaemonium.....squishy.

-thanks yet again.
