? Blach smooshy bug infested spot on beefsteak tomato

mlpost725August 5, 2012


I am in a pickle, (haha veggie humor). Yesterday I went out to my garden and picked a beautiful beefsteak tomato. When I picked it I noticed a black hole, about the size of a nickel. I looked closely to see if there was an earwig or beetle or bug of some kind inside the hole. It was mushy inside the hole and I noticed very very small white bugs, looked like worms or larvae of some kind. They were about, hmm half the length of a back slash on the keyboard ( / ). I have noticed black bug eaten spots before but never noticed anything inside the black area.

any ideas?!?!? I have looked and googled and looked and googled and have found nothing on what these creatures are.
