Common Tomato Plant Problems - Viral Diseases

How to Fix It

What it looks like:

Viral diseases mainly attack the tomatoes themselves. You might find black spots on tomatoes, or weird stripes on them. Don’t confuse signs of disease for just how some heirloom tomatoes look with natural stripes.

What causes it:

Many of these viruses spread when plants are stressed by heat, drought or poor soil.

What to do about it:

If you’ve read through all of these tomato problems and think your tomatoes may be suffering from a viral disease, spray your tomato plants with neem oil. Good soil management and using organic fertilizer for tomatoes also helps keep your plants healthy, which can help them naturally resist viruses better.
