Hello guys i recently planted 15 tomatoes and peppers and now all of them are infected Fusarium crown rot disease. Ive seen previous owner doing a good job with cherry tomato last year. It thrived and died till september and he was getting constant harvest till it died. Is this due to planting same crop every year? My soil tend to be in heavy side so mabye poor drainge incouraged crown rot?

That is disease I have not battled with, but it is reported a major problem in Florida. Poor drainage is cited as a major contributor. If tomatoes were successfully grown last year and all your tomatoes are infected this year, I would suspect infected seedlings.

I used plants from bonnie. I also have strawberries and radish growing next to it and it seems to be doing great! I checked the soil and its pretty heavy alot of rocks and compacted hard soil.

Some people refuse to plant Bonnie Plant transplants because of past issues. Some people do well with them. So, like Dillard mentioned, it may have been infected seedlings/transplants. What is the name of your tomato plants?
