Can you still eat the tomatoes off a plant that is infected with tomato spotted wilt virus?

Yeah Christina. No worries. If you've sprayed fungicide, give 'em a wash.

ChristinaC, how do you know for sure that's what you've got? Many tomato viruses and even bacterial diseases have symptoms very similar to each other that it can be quite challenging to self-diagnose.

Just curious,
Julianna

I'm quite certain that it's tomato spotted wilt virus because of the appearance of the tomatoes. They're red with yellow circles on them. Don't get me wrong.....they taste GREAT!! It's only a few plants on the one end of my garden. I just wanted to be sure they're still edible.....kinda' too late anyway, cuz' I've been eatin' them.
Julianna,
Are you Italian? I was just wondering because I've been searching for the best tomato sauce recipe and everyone knows that Italians know what they're doing!!! Thanks.
Christina
