What causes the skin on our tomatoes to look shriveled and the stems looks as if it is going to break on each tomato?
KATHEY from USA
Are the tomatoes in full sun? Is it real hot where you live? Sounds like the tomatoes are scalded from the sun.
I'd go to JerryBaker.com, to see if he has any natural solutions for you onLine. If not, I'd be inclined to think nutrient deficiency/wrong soil mixture, and dry air. I have had a lot of luck placing a thin cloth/umbrella over tomatoes when it's hot/dry. Also, plant BASIL around the base. Don't know why it works for me, but it does. Don't allow
too many green stems to be produced, so that the plant can concentrate on making good fruit instead.
Don't overspray with non-tomato plant food. Keep
evenly moist and well drained. Good luck, and God bless you. : )
