Pear Tomatoes all rotting from bottom

RUReddy(7B)October 5, 2013

Hi Folks. Wondering if anyone might know what this disease is. Every single one of my pear tomatoes has it on the bottom of the fruit. It starts small and then gets bigger as the fruit grows. The tomato will ripen with it, but the whole bottom is brown and rotted, and the fruit bitter. Never seen anything like it before. They've spent most of their lives in the greenhouse, but cannot find any insect damage.

Not a disease. Blossom end rot, aka BER. The growing media must remain evenly moist.

See the FAQ; 2nd item on the list

Here is a link that might be useful: BER & more
