Brown Spots on Ripening Tomatoes

Brown Spots on Ripening Tomatoes

I can't figure out why my tomatoes are turning black. I already watered them with Epsom salt a month ago. Can anybody help? I don't think it is bottom rot.

I have a friend who had the same problem, so he called the "Cooperative Extension" in his area, and they said it was a fungus or virus that hit throughout the area (N.Y. State). He had to pull up the plants and then bury them. (09/16/2009)

I had the same problem almost overnight. Happened right after the last big rain. Didn't affect them all on the same plant, weird. (09/17/2009)

It's blight. I had the same thing on some of my tomatoes. A lot of the community gardens had it here in Massachusetts. (09/17/2009)

It is blight, due to the excessive rain we have had. Some tomatoes are even falling off of the vine before they can get big too, a lot of people are dealing with this problem. (09/17/2009)
