tomatilla disease

nugrdnnutOctober 15, 2013

i had never grown tomatilla until this year. I planted one and it was growing faster than my Sungold. It flowered and was forming fruit profusely, then started going down hill. One branch started to turn yellow and slowly (over 2 weeks) the whole plant turned yellow and was dropping fruit. At this point I pulled the plant and threw it in the garbage.

I had tomatoes growing close by and none were affected... as in not having the same symptoms.

I want to try it again next year, but need some direction.

Any recommendation(s) is appreciate.

Never had any tomatillo problem. Actually all my tomatoes got zapped by LB but the tomatillo is there.

I can think of some ROOT problem. Now that the season over, just clean up around the root and check for any irregularity.
Do you have things like gophers around ?
