Rings on Underside of Tomatoes

pam102494 added on September 2, 2012 | Answered

I have a container garden of tomatoes and all summer long the tomatoes have had this ring around the bottom. We did have an insect problem, but Sevin took care of that. I have to cut off a good 1/4 of the tomatoes when I use them as this is hard and "pithy". I do have a picture I could send if it will help. Thanks for your help.
