Blossom-end rot - can I still turn this around?

gilintx | Jun 7, 2009 09:55 AM

Our San Marzanos are suffering from blossom-end rot. We've had only four fruit set so far, and every one of them has this problem. I've mulched and started watering only in the mornings in an attempt to stop this, but so far, it's had no effect. Googling around, the consensus seems to be that BER is tough to stop once it's started. Has anyone here been able to turn around a tomato plant with this problem? If so, what did you do? I'm starting to feel like there will be no San Marzanos this summer.
