Q.Tomato Wilt – Are Tomatoes Safe to Eat?

Anonymous added on March 21, 2014 | Answered

My indoor tomato plant may have verticillium wilt, from what I read at your site. It is a self starter plant from last year that had reseeded itself. I used the pot/soil from the original patio plant. If that is the case, is it safe to eat any of the cherry tomatoes it produces? Can you get sick from them? Thank you for your assistance.

They are safe to eat. While they may not have the same quality, in terms of size and flavor, due to the disease, they will not harm you in any way.
