Sounds like blossom end rot, which is generally caused by a lack of calcium in the soil.

Yes, Blossom end rot. Agreed, but calcium deficiency is only one effect or cause. Also irregular watering can bring it on. Once you have it (Blossom End Rot) .. I know of nothing to reverse it.

In my case, I cut my losses. Chose a different plot to plant them in, the following growing season and planted each seedling with a couple of crushed egg shells mixed in with the bone meal, and resolved to do a better job of regularly watering the tomato plants.
