Tomatoes and Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus

By farmerdill
March 3, 2014

Tomato spotted wilt first appears as light brown flecks on leaves. This is followed by growing brown spots, drooping, and finally, full browning and dying. The plants will look wilted. It affects many plants other than tomatoes, but on tomatoes the fruit is also severely affected. Discoloration is the most common effect, but cracking and rot also appear in severe cases. It also degrades the flavor and texture.

I am not familiar with the resistant hybrids (Bella Rosa, Amelia, Muriel, etc) you mention. Are they ready available to the public in plant form, or only as seeds? Where do I get some?

Bonnie plants dominates in this area and they usually have Amelia, used to carry BHN 444. This year they are listing Amelia, BHN 602, and Heinz Super Roma. http://bonnieplants.com/products/vegetables/tomato-varieties.... Not all nuserys order the same varieties from them, so you need to check. I grow from seed so I don't really keep up with mail order nurserys.
