Q.Why Is My Cherry Tomato Turning Yellow

Zone Lebanon middle east | krikri123 added on June 13, 2020 | Answered

My cherry tomato plant has been turning yellow recently. I thought it was because i wasn’t watering it as frequently but even after i started watering it twice as often, it kept turning yellow. I am worried it’s gonna end up dying or its yield will get affected. Thank you in advance.

I notice that the soil is quite heavy, and seems very compact and wet.

This leads me to believe That overwatering was the original culprit. With increased watering, this lead to heavier infection and suffocated roots.

It will be faster, and easier to start over with potting soil and fresh plants. Even with correction, yield will be diminished by a great margin.

Here are some articles that will help:
