Why do my tomato leaves have holes in them? (photo)

Post  NHGardener on 5/26/2011, 5:45 pm

One of my young tomato transplants has holey leaves. That's probably not a good thing.

Sorry the photo is a little out of focus. I guess the cross-bars were on the box and not the leaves. Next time I'll focus a little better.

My first thought with holes in the leaves is a pest. Have you found any bugs or caterpillars on the bottoms or tops of the leaves?

With the photo so out of focus, I would not begin to speculate. This is a really young plant and just transplanted to the garden, it could be a variety of things. Suggestion, just pinch these effected leaves off and the plant will put out new leaves within days. If it is pest or disease, time will tell. Very Happy

Thank you - I went back out with a pair of magnifiers and couldn't find anything alive on the leaf, and it broke off anyway, but I did notice a few holes in some other leaves. Hmmm. Well, we'll keep an eye on that. There's still time to get new plants if needed, assuming the plants may just have been too stressed.
