My tomatoes are ripening but they are rotten on the bottom half. What can I do organically to correct this problem? The plant is in a container half whiskey barrel since we live in the desert and the soil here is not good.
I harvested my first three tomatoes yesterday but all of them were black on the bottom, and when I tried to cut off the black part, it extended up into the heart of the tomato. What is causing this? It sounds like blossom end rot.
Right now they are loaded with tons of green tomatoes, and some of them are just starting to blush red. And then three days later, it all goes horribly wrong. There is nothing more disheartening than to see that all of your ripening tomato beauties or peppers or squash are now rotting from the bottom—right on the vine!

Hi, my tomatoes have developed rot at the bottom of the fruit. My other plants appear to be okay. Can you please advise how to stop it affecting my tomatoes?
Has anyone ever seen this before and is there anything I can do to remedy it? Thanks so much. This can make the blossom-end of the fruit to get a scab on it, and become discolored or watery.
I have Roma tomatoes growing and are starting to have fruit. I've found some of the new fruit has black spots on the bottom. I cut one open and it seemed fine.
Why are your tomatoes rotting on the bottom? Unfortunately, they probably have blossom-end rot. Calcium is needed for normal cell growth.
