Is this BER?
I have 2 Bush Early Girl plants potted in 5-gallon buckets. The plants are very vigorous and bushy. They both have 20+ small fruit growing on them.
During a major heat-wave last week, the plants became very limp and wilted, despite daily watering. Now, some of the fruit are developing sunkened, brown areas near the bottom of the tomato. It is not, however, at the bottom tip, where the blossoms were. It is scattered around the bottom of the fruit.
Is this BER? I always thought BER showed up at the very bottom of the tomato. Also, I have never had BER show up on container plants before, but I have never grown Bush Early Girl either.
Thanks for your help.
