Tomato mold / rot help

andromedadewJuly 29, 2014

What is this and how do I prevent it? So far it's the only one but it's also the first on that plant to ripen. Leaves are fine no signs of any problems. Lots of flowers and tomatoes. First year vegetable garden converted from a strawberry garden, which was lousy with grubs / June bugs. When I first cleaned up the garden the soul was rich and dark, tons of worms. But then little ghost flies were present for a Few days (before I planted tomatoes). My cauliflower neighboring this plant did get cabbage loopers also. Haven't added anything to my soil.

Not exactly sure, but looks like advanced sun scald or blossom end rot. Check the rest of the tomatoes and make sure they are ok, and remove any that are bad. BER will clear up over time. Hopefully you're done with the bad ones.

Right now it is a fungal mold growth. It is possibly grey Mold. If so, the entire plant would be affected, stems , leaves...
I would destroy every fruit fruit like that and spray the plant with fungicide.
