Why Do Tomatoes Have a Hard Core in Them?

Why do the tomatoes have a core in them? They never use to be like that.

I think it depends on the type of tomato, and how ripe it is. My garden tomatoes don't have the hard core; tomatoes from the store often do.

It can happen in garden tomatoes as well. It is caused by hot and dry conditions. Not a lot you can do about it.
