Tomato Leaf Curl

Zone 7 | sthomas38 added on June 6, 2012 | Answered

All the research I can find on tomato leaf curl describe the leaf curling upward. Mine is curling downward. The plant is blooming and so far the blooms are not dropping. The plant next to it looks fine, and is the same variety. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE? THANKS

This can be caused by heat or too cool. It is a defensive reaction on the part of the plant. The leaves will also take on a leathery feel. But, it is harmless to the plant. This article has more information on it:
