Hi, can anyone tell me what my tomato problem is? This is my first year planting in my square foot garden. I got a huge volume, but they all had this at the stem area, all varieties I planted. I want to make sure next year I fix my mistakes!
I planted a many different types of plants this year. One was very prone to look like yours. I looked up the variety and found out it was normal. We all had a very extreme summer. It can also be caused when the internal growth is faster than skin growth.
This can be caused by:
2. Extreme fluctuations in temperature
3. Extreme fluctuations in soil moisture
4. Not enough foliage to protect fruit
5. Some tomato varieties are more prone to cracking than others.
Here's a good link. If anyone else has more specific input let me know too.
Thanks for the ideas and link.
too much water at the wrong time.
