Q.Brown Bottoms on Tomatoes

Anonymous added on May 22, 2011 | Answered

I’m growing plum tomatoes and yellow bell peppers using the Topsy Turvy that hangs upside down. I have them placed in full sun, which they get for 6-8 hours a day. I have lots of tomatoes and peppers, but the tomatoes are forming dark brown bottoms before they can fully develop into even the size of a cherry tomato. Can someone tell me what’s happening and how to prevent this?

Your tomatoes have blossom end rot. Get special formulation from garden shop for this and spray it on. I think they said it doesn't get enough water regularly. Must be regular watering; not a lot at one time.
