Q.Brown Bottoms on My Romas

Zone I am in NW AR | glasslady1957 added on July 7, 2013 | Answered

I am growing Roma tomatoes in a large pot. They are coming out, but the newer ones toward the top of the bush are turning brown and mushy on the bottoms, and are not very big at all when they are doing this. Am I watering them too much?

Apply a big handful of lime within the dripline of each tomato plant to provide calcium. This article explains blossom end rot: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/tomato-blossom-rot.htm
