Q.I Need Help Identifying What Is Causing This Discoloration On My Cherry Tomato Plants

Zone 06514 | Anonymous added on June 5, 2024 | Answered

It’s only been a week since we planted these cherry tomatoes in our garden and the leaves started to look discolored. I can’t tell if it’s a fungus or bacteria? I will include pictures of the plant and some leaves I took off of it. Thank you so much!

You can apply a fungicide for tomato leaf spots but it will only slow the spread of the disease. Apply mulch under the plants to prevent soil borne diseases splashing up on the leaves.
