Blossom End Rot is very common on tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, and melons.
Blossom end rot usually forms on the bottom of the fruit causing a brown, water-soaked spot. The cause of this? A calcium imbalance in the fruit. The imbalance occurs when there are fluctuations in soil moisture or excessive fertilization.
What can you do?
- Pick and discard the affected fruit, allowing the plant to channel all its energy into the growth of the remaining fruit.
- Apply Rot Stop. This will give plants the extra calcium it needs to maintain stronger more disease resistant plants.
