My tomatoes are not ripening to an even red color. What is the reason?
Uneven ripening includes green stripes, streaks, blotches, stars on the bottoms of fruit, yellow or green shoulders, etc. This problem may be caused by high fertility (N), low potassium (K), high temperature (lycopene killed), viruses, or white flies. Be sure to maintain the correct fertilizer amounts. Tissue test to check this.
RAYMOND, Miss. -- Commercial vegetable growers have a new mobile-based resource to help them manage pests and diseases in their crops. The MyIPM for Vegetables app is the latest in the MyIPM app series. MyIPM for Vegetables currently offers resources for tomatoes and cucurbits, which includes cucumbers, pumpkins, squash and watermelons.
There’s nothing as divine as a homegrown tomato. I’m a sucker for a tomato sandwich or a BLT during summer.
