Leaves turning white tomatoes and pepper plants

bkp_80(z7 TX)March 30, 2011

Just planted some tomatoe and pepper plants this past weekend. There are a few plants that have leaves turning white. Some of the pictures look like a glare on the leaves but it's actually where the leaves are turning white. Any ideas what this is or how to fix it, it's been cloudy since I planted so I don't think there sun scalded.

Sun scald. Where they well hardened off before transplanting? If so, usually the plant will adjust with time and while you may lose those leaves the plant itself should be ok. If not then you need to protect it for a few days with some shade and wind protection.
