Mysterious fungus besetting ripe tomatoes
The initial batch of tomatoes I picked from my garden were small but lovely. Now, though, as soon as they start to ripen many of the tomatoes are developing blotches that sprout fungus while either still on the vine or shortly after being brought indoors. I'm not sure what it is, but it's forcing me to use my picked tomatoes quicker than I'd like.
At least some of the blotching can be attributed to the fact that the tomatoes bruise and split within two to three of sitting on the counter. I rest them stems-up usually; should I be resting them stems down, a seen here?
