ripe tomatoes split with worm - what is this?

cannerintrainingJuly 22, 2007

Hi! new to this forum. I love tomatoes, and this year I have the same pest and am determined to rid myself of if only I cannot find out what 'it' is. I have searched, but am now turning to all of you for advice.

My tomatoes grow just fine, nice big round green tomatoes, and then just when they turn they split near the stem and once ripe there is a hole with a little critter inside.

Any idea what I have and how to get rid of them.

I used to live in the country and had no problem. Now I live in the city limits and have a real battle gardening.

Thanks for help.

I can post pictures if needed.
