Stem end rot??

redd1981(5b)July 12, 2014

Hey everyone I have a sunsugar plant growing at my bosses house and they are turning black and soft where they connect to the stem. There are other types of tomatoes in the same garden with no problem at all. I also have a sunsugar at my house and I havent seen anything like it on mine.

Any ideas about what it might be or a solution?

You could take a cuttings and root them. Stick them in water and see if anything oozes out of the stem. If not, you can salvage the plant that way.

Seeing a photo would really help. The diescription is just too vague.

It could just be cracking that has gotten infected with mold, it could be a fungus disease called Gray Mold, or it could be damage from tomato fruitworms.
