Black tomato death, that is.
This is the second year in a row that my potato leaved black tomatoes have dies in July. Both 'Balck Sea Man' and 'Putple Pear' have gone from healthy plants a week to wilting and dead this week. It's very puzzling as they are amongst other tomato plants that are thriving.
I've noticed no spots on the leaves or stems. The plants just start to wilt and are dead within a week. Hmnn... these varieties are both from Russia. Maybe they can't take the extreme heat.
Oh well, such is garden life. I'll be loaded with ripe 'Black Cherry' tomatoes soon as well as 'Amy's Apricot', 'Reisenstraube', 'Ivory Pear' and 'Italian Cherry'. I won't even mention the 'Victor' tomatoes that are absolutely loaded and starting to ripen.
There is always next year...
