Eating Tomatoes From Plant With Blight

My tomato plants have blight. If they live until harvest, are the tomatoes safe to eat?

Hardiness Zone: 5a

No, do not eat tomatoes that have a bacteria on them. You can pick up a infection called pseudomonas. It can be picked up by anywhere in the outside garden veggies and plants and stagnant water.

Just getting over this mess, almost a month on anti-bodies, thought I was going to croak! Go on line and look up this "pseudomonas" good luck.

How do you know they have blight? Are the tomatoes turning brown? I have eaten several off my plant but don't know if they have blight or not. Has not bothered me yet.

From what I've read plants with the blight should be destroyed immediately. This is to keep from spreading it to your own soil and other gardens.
