I’m growing a Roma tomato plant In a planter box, and when it appears ripe, I pick it only to find a big brown circle/spot on the bottom of the tomato? I don’t know why I can’t get my photo to download?

That is blossom end rot. It is common with soils lacking in calcium, or with an unbalanced calcium and magnesium ratio.

I recommend Dolomitic lime for a long term fix, but if you want short term relief then epsom salt foliar spray will be preferable.
