This is the second year my tomatoes have black holes. I don't see any worms. When I first noticed this I sprayed with neem oil and dish soap. I think the first fruits were the only ones I see like this but time will tell. What is this?

Could be stinkbugs.
I read that a damp towel over a lawn chair, overnight will attract them. Then early in morning you can collect them into jar of soapy water, and let them 😮 DROWN !!!

Spray only kills eggs and nymphs, that get spray on them. There sucker bugs. Adults lay eggs at base of plant, so be sure to spray stem at ground of plant.
I've heard that Neem oil is systemic when applied as a drench. Also after several sprayings.

Adult stinkbugs, fly, and have a hard shell, that's impervious to sprays.

Read up on them, maybe you could figure out a way to get dim SUCCKERS. 👍
I hate bugs so much Angry !
I have no qualms, of squishing dim dudes with my BARE HANDS. nodding Rolling on the floor laughing

Bye, have a great day. 👍
