Rotten Tomatoes

I'm pretty sure I know why this happened to these homegrown tomatoes but I want to ask all of you, has this ever happened to your tomatoes?

Huh. I'm in MN too and this is happening to my tomatoes! Unfortunately I have no clue what's going on...

I got it last year. It is called blossom end rot. I went to my local garden center and bought some spray and it took care of it. I'd tell you what it is called, but we just moved and someone put it up too high in the garage. Just tell them you have blossom end rot and they will point you to the right stuff.

yup, blossom end rot. Caused by low concentration of calcium in the fruit.
Reasons:
- soil may have low calcium levels or high amounts of competitive cations
- drought stress/excessive soil moisture reduce calcium uptake
- rapid growth from over application of nitrogen fertilization.
