Blossom rot, or blossom end rot, is a common problem encountered by tomato gardeners. The condition is characterized by a dark, rotten spot at the blossom end of developing tomatoes. Fortunately, there are ways to combat blossom rot before it starts, but once it appears on an individual fruit, there is no way to “cure” the affected tomato. Although you can cut away the rotted portion and safely eat the rest, it is best to eliminate the problem before it reaches that point.
