Gnarly Looking Tomato Plant

Post  Ericka2385 on 8/25/2012, 6:06 pm

I would like to think I have a perfectly healthy Cherokee Purple tomato plant sitting out in the garden. It has nice dark green leaves, a strong main stem and branches, flowers, and a few small green tomatoes starting to grow. There is some leaf miner damage, but that does't worry me too badly. However, it's gnarly looking. The branches and stem look knotty and twisty, and the leaves have some weird curl thing going on. Of my 15 plants, this is the only one doing this. I do have a second Cherokee purple plant on the other side of the yard (I wan't to experiment with sun light levels in the new house) and it has some of the leaf curl/knotty branches, but not as badly. The second plant has more baby tomatoes on it, but is isn't as full of a plant or as deep in color.

Can you guys take a look and someone with more experience, or who has grown Cherokee Purples give me some input.

Mine also has some pretty curly foliage of the older leaves. It may be the nature of that variety. Also, sometimes if it gets really hot foliage may wilt or curl to reduce moisture loss.
