leaf curl on tomato plant

Tomato leaf curl (physiological damage)

The upward rolling of the lower leaves of tomato plants is a common occurrence in mid-summer and is associated with high temperatures. Some tomato cultivars are more prone to leaf roll (see above photo). It does not harm plant growth or yields.
