    That is tomato blossom rot. Your tomatoes are lacking Calcium.

    Don't over fertilize or over water them, you can use mulch to keep them evenly watered. A calcium solution made for blossom-end rot. You can buy the Calcium chloride or calcium nitrate at your garden center and place that in a spray bottle to spray the tomatoes. Hope this helps and good luck with those tomatoes. This has worked for me.

    Get a product called Super Sweet. As the poster above said, this is caused by a calcium deficiency. Put 1 cup in each planting hole & mix into the soil. That will solve your problem.
