    According to this....



    Q. Can I save seeds from my tomatoes?

    A. The pathogen is not carried on seeds, but if infected fruits rot before seeds are mature, there won’t be any viable seeds to harvest.

    That's good news, thanks. I have saved a couple of ripe toms to do just this. Luckily there was a good crop last month before the blight took hold.

    • Saw this on my potatoes yesterday, can someone tell me if it's blight? We have had a lot of sun so wasn't sure if it was maybe sun damage from my over watering.. but it's my first couple of months growing anything and I have no idea Help!

      • I'm pretty sure it's not blight. The leaves often go like this late in the season, just before they start dying off. I suspect your crop is nearly ready to lift.

        • Hi all,

          Just noticed this on my tomatoes - I dont think it is blight looking at the pics in this thread, but is it the very start of blight or is it something entirely different? What should I do? My tomatoes were FINALLY turning yellow!!!

            • Not that I'm aware of - and no damage to anything else?! I thought it might be a deficiency but I've been feeding with tomatorite weekly?

                • I've removed some blah looking leaves too Leaves sometimes get splashed & scorched or wet leaves touching the ground can pick up fungal/bacterial issues that look similar. I don't think its blight,I'd just keep an eye on the stem for brown markings to be definite of blight,those look a bit like water droplet shapes?

                  • Oh thank you JJ, it has been particularly wet here and although the plants do have a certain amount of cover the rain still gets to them depending on which way they wind is blowing! Hopefully that's all it is.

                        • I don't think that's blight, Jay22. I reckon it's scorch marks. Could even caused by a dog cocking his leg up against the plant. I know as one of our dogs tends to do that from time to time... Fortunately, he never gets the fruit.
                          Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

                            I agree that's nothing to worry about!

                            • What do we think? This is on the Charlottes, planted end March, and producing some lovely tatties right now. The Roosters in the same bed are looking fine.
