Hi all,
I have a month old tomato plants that show the same disease/deficiency. Initially i thought it was some nutrient deficiency but it is clear now I think that it looks more like spots and they tend to be on the main veins of the leaves.
Please check the images.
Any ideas?
thank you!

I think you have two problems. The leaves are waaay too green, a sign of too much nitrogen in the soil. The bumps look like edema caused by improper watering.

Hi Chuck!
Thanks for the reply, i think the color is also due to photo white balance/contrast, I dont find "greener" as usual tomato plants that I had in the past. But edema is interesting suggestion. I water whenever soil is almost dry and I water from the bottom. Also if you see closely the veins are actually affected while quick internet search for edema showed leaves which the veins are intact. But I agree that this is by far the closest I could find online.

I have some jalapeno pepper plants that have edema and it looks similar to your plants but more severe. can you get a better picture of the underside of the leaves. also look closely with a magnifying glass and see if you can see little crystals forming on the bottom of the leaf were the bumps are.
