I live in Cherokee, NC. I have Cherokee Purple tomatoes and Big Boys. They grow and then before they are ripe, they have rotten spots in them.
It does sound like you may have some blossom end rot. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/tomato-blossom-rot.htm
If you are talking about a black spot on the bottom (?) of the tomato it could be blossom end rot - very common when the plant doesn't get enough calcium. Also, check your tomatoes for little insect holes - I'm an "organic" gardener - no pesticides for me but there is the inevitable downside. Hope this is helpful
I have 2 earthboxes, seemimg overnight one of my Tomato plants looked like it was starting to die. It's a Cherokee Purple planted in a box with an Heirloom that is doing well. Box is set up per directions and watered properly. It looks starved for water. It's about 2 foot above the box, very bushy and I thought looking great. Should I remove the black covering and feed it some water from the top? My other concern is that it is 24" from a flower pot that I have 3 sunflowers in. I read on your website that sunflowers somehow damage tomato plants. The sunflowers are only 15" tall and haven't flowered yet.

I have several Cherokee purple tomato plants growing. There are some tomatoes already on the vine. The yellow blossoms have turned brown and appear to be drying. I've looked all over the internet and can't find out what's wrong or how to fix it. Would really appreciate your expertise. Thank you.
High temperatures can cause the blossoms to drop.

What am I doing wrong? This is the second year I have attempted to grow Cherokee purple and I am having the same problem.The plants are beautiful, have plenty of blooms and are growing daily. The problem is my blooms never make a tomato. My wife planted a different type tomato a week after I did and now has two tomatoes. Please help.

These are tomato cheroke plants. It's spreading and I don't know how to save them.
I'm very uncertain of the question being asked, and no photo came through. I will be unable to diagnose any issues that you may have at this time.
