What is happening to the leaves on my tomato plants? Some are growing perfectly fine and full, others are growing like this: dark green/purple and withered. It started off as just one branch and now it is multiple. Although, like I said, it is not affecting the plant as a whole. Some new leaf sets are growing perfectly normal. Even the withered discolored branches of leaves are still growing tomatoes. What could be causing this? Should I remove branches of leaves that look like this, or should I keep them on plant since they are still growing tomatoes?

I've had that happen with cooler temps. Have you had cooler weather lately?

It can also be from a potassium deficiency.

It wouldn't be cooler temperatures because it has been consistently in the mid 70's during the day, and higher. At night it is staying 66 degrees and higher.
I threw some banana peels by each plant the other day, so hopefully that helps. Although, I probably shouldn't wait around a month for the banana peels to break down into the soil. I'm going to have go and find a liquid fert. or something in the meantime for a quicker solution.

Thank You for the sources to check, I don't think it is bacterial wilt, because its not happening to the entire plant. And one of the symptoms is dark and wet inside of stems when broken, and the stems look fine inside when broken. Hmm...

Here's a site about stem problems.https://homeguides.sfgate.com/save-wilted-tomato-plants-50009.html It can be so many different things. Can be a fungus, stalk borer, too dry, too wet, might be something already in the soil. I hope you can figure it out before your plants die.
