The Q&A Archives: curling tomato leaves

Question: I live in Phoenix Az, and have a beautiful veggie garden going in the ground. My problem is that the leaves on some of my bigger variety tomato plants are starting to curl inward toward themselves, With the heat starting, I water in the early A.M. All the other veggies seem to be fine. Any advice? Thanks in advance, Blu

Answer: As long as the leaves remain green, curling isn't a health concern for your tomato plants. The curling is usually the plant's defense against hot summer sunshine. The lower leaves will be a bit more shaded so you won't see as much curling with them. Hope you have a bountiful harvest.
