Tomato Diagnosis?


This is the third tomato we've taken from the garden. All three have had this "thing" on their bottom - like something dark is eating away at it. We've simply cut the bottom part off and eaten the top. Tastes just fine - no one has croaked - not yet.

Any ideas what this is??

Hobbled Wife here... this is blossom rot. According to this site, it is a "serious disorder" and is due to low calcium in the plant. Guess I have some work to do to make my soil better next year!
