Blossom rot, what causes, how to treat it??
Some of my tomatoes are roting from blossom end. I heard that this is called blossom rot. This problem is much more sever in ROMA than others. I just get rid of them at the first notice. As I do not want them to waste the plans resources.
Now my questions are: (1) what causes it and (2) how can it be prevented. Rots usually happen when there is lots of rain. But we have not had that problem. Also, I water my plants from ground (NO spray) and I keep the lower parts of my plants trimmed, so air can circulate. The tomatoes that get rot, most of them are in the open and not hiding inside or touching the ground.
Well, I have lots of tomatoes and not worried about the amount of crop but I post this to find out and hopefully it will also help my fellow gardener with similar problem.
