Default Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (w/ Pix)

Thought I'd post this for future reference.
This is Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV).
Worse disease I've ever seen in my limited growing
experience. At least with Fusarium, I get fruit before the
plant dies.

This one just stunts the plant and deforms the fruit, if it gets
that far.

Vectored by thrips, it is especially bad in the deep south.
