I had a few tomatoes with end rot but that cleared up but no cracking yet which is caused by the heat. I grow under 70 percent shade cloth and is the only reason they haven't crack even though it has been in the 90's. Cover them bad boys up. Forget what the experts say. I've been told for 15 years that you can't grow in that much shade but I do it every year. Live Archive 6-20-01
