    Take them back to the Depot. The "experts" there should be able to tell you what's wrong and you should at least get to pick new ones.

    Dad and Barb -- That's not a bad idea, at least returning them and getting store credit. I think I may stick to tomatoes from a local nursery this year, depending on what the experts say about diagnosing these.

    Could it be the sun burns? Where do you keep them? I had similar situation with white spots. It turned out that there was water on leaves + direct sun = sunburned.

    It could very well be sunburn. My Early Girl
    plant had, and has similar leaf ?wilt? yet produces like crazy. Have you had any unseasonably bright days?

    Heather, I think that these tomatoes were not 'hardened off' and you have burned them or the cold has affected them. No tomatoes until mid-May! Never trust HD?

    I use to be an IPM scout for tomato farmers and it looks like sun scorch,

    I would plant them and not worry about it. You don't toss out the children when they get sunburn, do ya ? Plants want to grow even if they get a few scratches, etc.

    Because it's easier to enjoy your garden if you're not enslaved by it.

    Well I have the smartest readers ever! You were correct, just a simple case of sunburn. Check out the diagnosis from the experts on Garden Rant: http://www.gardenrant.com/my_weblog/2010/04/creeping-white-death-srsly.html
