    its called blossom rot, it’s a calcium deficiency....some crush up a couple tums tabs and put arround the plant, or if you have a lot of tomato plants, use garden lime a good handful at the base of the plants, water it in. I add some Epsom salts magnesium..to help the blossoms set properly.

    Your tomatoes have blossom rot going on,usually caused by a calcium deficiency . If you have some anti acid tablets crush them and sprinkle them about. You could also add some Epsom salts (Magnesium sulfate) around your plants, this is a nutrient for them.

    That is called blossom rot and is generally caused from lack of calcium. Try a puree in the food processor with egg shells. Just crushing them isn't enough to get use of them this season. After you puree the shells, add water and pour it at the base. You should see improvement. Do this every ten days to three weeks all summer. I do it ten days as tomatoes take so much out of the soil, some people do it 2 or 3 times a season.
