I think that's called blossom end rot.

That's not your problem, Those big caterpillars only eat the leaves and you can't mistake them, They can eat a bunch of leaves. I also think the little red "horn" on the back can inflict pain.

I sprayed mine with a fungicide and it went away. Coincidence? Maybe.

Blossom rot , Go to a lawn and garden place and tell them what you got , they make a spray for it. Next year before your maters make sow land plaster on each side of your rows it will cut down on it alot.
ETA need to hit it with the spray while there still green .

I'm interested..........that's exactly what my tomatoes look like, except they do it when they are still green, too.

Yeah its been bad this year do to weather (i know because I sell chem and fert for a living) , its also a sign of low calsium . Next year make sure you put down lime in dec or jan , then put down landplaster after planting

Definately not "Tomato Worms" but kill them off early if you can. I used to catch them and feed them until they changed into moths. They can eat an enormous amount of leaves and hurt your crop.

Just a know the facts kind of thing, Tomatoes and Tobacco are of the same family of plants.

Check out www.gardensalive.com

You still have time to save the other tomatoes if you spray "tomato rot stop"

MMMMMMMMMMMM Tomacco.
BTW the horn on the mato worm is HARMLESS, can't even poke you as it's to soft and will bend. Not poisonous at all.

Your nutients in the soil are off. Calcium deficiency.

Correct.

To fix in the orgainic long term way: Take your left over egg shells. Rinse well, dry and crush. Mix into your soil and you will solve the calcium deficiency. It might take a while though.

quick fix....drown the plant in fricken milk ASAP!

You might catch this phenomenon sooner by observing the tomato flowers falling off before they get a chance to produce a tomato.

Those aren't tomatoes, they're ripening tomaco.


Mmm. Toma-a-a-a-a-co!

oh, the humanity. That's a crying shame right there. Man, I'd give my left nut for a summer's worth of good 'maters.

My mom is a master gardener and claims that adding certian types of lime or limestone to the soil before you plant prevents blossom end rot (I have some on my tomatos despite applying lime).
