This is called blossom end rot let them ripen and then cut that off. I heard a nurseryman tell this. I had been throwing them away too but now I keep them and just trim.

Sounds like a soil amendment is needed or possibly you're overwatering or have poor drainage. Here's a couple links with more info:

It is caused from lack of water or too much water. I haven't had this happen this year so I guess they are happy. The tomatoes are not very big though just medium sized.

Thank you, I am not sure I will try again for the 3rd time. If I do I sure will do better research. I had some of my cherry tomatoes on my salad today and they sucked..skin was tough..so think I will stick with honeysuckle and daisys LOL

Thanks for the help cuz I will come back here if I decide to give it another go. Ohhh my jalepenos (blah) did well LOL
