Sickly Tomato Plant

This Black Krim tomato plant isn't doing well at all. It was growing fine until about a week ago. Then, one morning, I noticed that the top few leaves had wilted. Since then, it hasn't grown any taller, the remainder of the leaves have deteriorated, and the stem has developed a brown spiderweb pattern that began at the bottom and spread upward. I guess it's some sort of blight.

Yikes, I am sorry to hear about your tomato plant. I hope you do better next year. (Or you get a miraculous recovery)

Sounds like some kind of virus. Mine did that once. Killed the whole plant.

I have not had much luck with Black Krim here in Tucson, AZ. It is allegedly supposed to do well in hot weather, but this doesn't seem to be the case. It grows for a while and then just quits.
