Help.... what is this??? (Pics included)

Just noticed this on my one Roma tomato plant... any idea what it is? The rest of the plants look fine, it's just on this one.

Is it end blossom rot, or Tomato blight?

What should I do? It's not on all the tomatoes, just a few on this one plant. Should I rip out the entire plant so it doesn't spread to any other plants, or just get rid of the tomatoes that show signs of going bad and leave the rest of the plant alone????

Also how can I prevent this from happening, now or in the future.

Thanks!

Blossom end rot.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Thanks guys... I was thinking the same thing... There was a stretch when I didn't water them enough. That may have caused it, but I'm thinking I need to add some oyster shells or something for next year. Hopefully the rest of the tomatoes are ok.... I only found about 5/6 that had the blossom end rot. So hopefully that will be it.

Thanks again!
