Q.Why Do The Tomatoes Only Get Bottom End Rot When They Turn Red

Zone Green bay, wisconsin | Anonymous added on August 12, 2021 | Answered

I have two plants in buckets. They are huge, healthy and loaded with beautiful tomatoes. I check them daily for rot and all is good; however, as soon as they turn red, they have rot. What am I doing wrong and how do I fix it? I fertilize and spray with a calcium mixture.
