Blossom End Rot

White or black patches on the bottom of the tomato are known as Blossom End Rot (BER) and usually indicate a lack of nutrients getting to the tomato. It can be due to a calcium deficiency or acidic soil, or poor growing conditions. Sometimes it clears up on its own after the first crop.

My husband digs the hole before he plants his tomatoes 6" deeper and adds a hand full of Epson Salt and covers with soil and then plants the tomatoe plant.
