Black bases on tomatoes

Judy_51October 25, 2013

We live in East Pilbara, Western Australia and decided this year to try growing tomatoes as the house we moved into had lush gardens for the area and thought our chances weere pretty good. The Roma tomato plants grew well (in the ground) and we were excited to see our first tomatoes going red. But when we picked them they are brown on outside base and black in miiddle. Does anyone know why this is happening
