In Reply to: Black Rot on Tomatoes posted by Betty on July 16, 2002 at 09:04:36:
: Is there anything I can do to prevent future tomatoes from getting the black spot (BlackRot) on the bottom of my tomatoes? Thanks for any info
I had the same problem last year and found out that gypsum was the answer. The soil needs calcium I was told, plus the gypsum is good for tough soil. Add some to the soil around your plants and that should help-you can get it at the nursery. Follow the directions on the bag for the area you have. Good luck!
