While there are many plant diseases that make growing tomatoes a challenge in the Southeast, a relatively new disease threatens to make homegrown tomatoes almost impossible for many local gardeners.
Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV) is different from most tomato diseases because it is caused by a virus rather than a fungus or bacteria. Most virus diseases in plants cause the infected plant to show strange color patterns on the leaves or flowers and may cause stunting, but usually do not kill their host plant outright.
