Lets play "Diagnose this tomato plant"

Hi,

One of our tomato plants has strange looking leaves. The veins look sorta red and the leaves are curled up. After some research, my guess was that the plant has verticillium wilt, but I'd like to know if anyone can confirm or deny my novice diagnosis. Thanks.

Here's a link to a photo of the plant:

From this link it looks like you are correct in that guess.

Thanks for the reply, Coneflower. I had looked at a similar page, I just wish that the pictures showed the plant damage a little closer so I could compare better.

While our plant's leaves are rolled with reddish veins and a lighter, sorta yellowish green in color, the leaves don't appear to be browning at all- at least not yet. Having no experience with this before, it's difficult for me to be sure.
