Hello Walta,
Your tomatoes show blossom end-rot symptoms caused by a low concentration of calcium in the tomato fruit. Low calcium may result from competition with other ions in soil e.g. potassium; it can also be caused by drought stress, fluctuations in soil moisture, or an application of excessive amounts of nitrogen fertilizer.
