It's a pretty cool thing that started here. Who knows, maybe we can cull the best and have some really strong plants in a few years. I've lost a lot of them to blossom end rot and we're in a drought. But as you can see, the fruit looks very good. I'm going to get a few more and make some fresh sauce....I've got some 00 on day 2 ferment, so I'll let you know how they taste.

If you have a problem with blossom end rot try watering a water soluble calcium product, calcium is not mobile within tomato plants so you will have to continue while they are growing.

Water is the other significant factor in blossom end rot. Maintaining a consistent level of available moisture to the plant rather than a harsh cycle of wet and dry in conjunction with an adequate available calcium supply is the answer to managing it.

You can and probably will develop your own strain of tomato that will handle your local conditions better than what you started with.

More strength to the arm of those who develop area specific varieties to share for the common good.

We have been using a liquid spray application....seems to have done the trick.

Thanks guys......I had done some research and came up,with the same info on watering, see posts 386 and 388.

It's been a really dry year here, and even with amended soil it's been tough to keep the moisture level where it needs to be. I am going to install an irrigation system next season.

Those are producing good volumes for heirlooms.

I grew them one year, but Texas doesn't work for them. Too alkaline, too hot, and too dry. Someone on here sent me the seeds, I forget who, but thank you again.

At Mandola's Market today, they had SM seeds in Italian packaging. It was tempting, but it will have to wait for a greenhouse and start them early.

Tscar,

I would be glad to send you some seeds for 2015. I am planning on harvesting seeds again this fall. I have offered them to people on the forum for several years. SC and Gulf seem to have some the best success from their Utah roots.

I'm not sure why they are producing so well, it's been very hot and no rain. I've had to water twice a day and use rot stop a couple times. The good news is that I've only picked off 2 of those gross horn worms, and no more have reappeared.

Also, we planed collards, seen in from of the tomatoes, as sort of a sacrificial plant. It seems to have worked...none of the tomatoes have been eaten by caterpillars...unlike the collards. I guess southern bugs prefer southern vegetables.
