: 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
Plant resistant varieties, plum tomatoes are said never to suffer from this condition(it is not a disease) add calcium to the soil around the plants, save your eggshells, crush them and toss some in the planting hole. water well and deeply when you do, tomatoes like it that way. good luck.
