Curly Top?

Post  MikeP on 7/5/2011, 9:35 am

Anyone know what's going on here with my peppers and beans?
Please tell me this is not the curly top virus?

The pepper plants are looking like they are getting ready to flower. The bean foliage, I am not so sure. If it were my plant I would probably remove the effected foliage. As with any suspected infection, do not compost but trash the removed portion, wash hands and disinfect clippers immediately after handling the suspected plant parts. Let us know how it looks in a week or so. Good luck. Very Happy Very Happy

They are also beginning to flower, but I'm concerned because the pepper leaves are looking a little stunted/shriveled and curled downward and some of the bean leaves are really shriveled.
There's also a tomato plant that was all wilty and a little shriveled looking, though it's possible that one is just lack of water as the mix was really dry last night... I watered heavily and will check back tonight.

Yeah I hear ya. These symptoms are not abnormal if there is stress from lack of H2O. It may be time to water 2X a day. Post some photos next week and we can all see how things are progressing. Good luck! What a Face

I had what I'm pretty sure was curly top last year on a few of my peppers, and this doesn't look like it. In my case what happened was quick onset EXTREME wilting, resembling severe water stress, and no matter how much water we added it didn't perk up. The affected plants both died within 48 hours of showing symptoms.

This looks like mine… I had what I think was cucumber mosaic virus on tomatoes and I pulled most out… My peppers looked affected too, like yours, but not as bad as the tomatoes. See if you can find pics of it on peppers.

It was almost definitely a virus. I've pulled the affected plants (10 or 11 pepper plants... My babies) and a square of beans, plus the affected looking leaves of a couple of eggplants and another square of beans and the situation appears to be under control.

I'm not sure if it was CMV, but it looks like it might have been TEV?

Have you taken samples to the county Ag agent at the Coop Extension Service? they most certainly will help to ID problems you may have.

Nope, didn't think of it.
Don't even know if there is one in my county.
