Let’s bust some myths about blossom-end rot (BER) in tomatoes!🍅

❌MYTH: You should use Tums tablets to combat calcium deficiency in tomatoes.
✅FACT: While Tums tablets do contain calcium, it would take 288 Tums tablets for each tomato plant every single year (which BTW is over $40 per plant) to supply the amount of calcium needed to combat BER. Just use dolomite, $4 for 40 lbs.

❌MYTH: Epsom salt is beneficial to your tomatoes and can keep them from developing BER.
✅FACT: BER is caused by a calcium deficiency and inconsistent watering, and Epsom salt does not contain calcium. It may actually promote BER more than prevent it!

❌MYTH: Using crushed egg shells is a quick fix to BER.
✅FACT: Crushed egg shells are a great source of calcium, but it’s not a quick fix to combat BER. Adding crushed egg shells consistently every year will help to bolster the calcium in the soil. Dolomite is an easier way to supply calcium.

❌MYTH: I can spray milk on tomato plants to increase calcium levels.
✅FACT: Spraying milk on a tomato plant to combat BER is a waste of milk. There’s not enough available calcium in a glass of milk. Besides, calcium is taken up by the roots and transported through the tomato plant.

❌MYTH: Putting a banana peel in water helps BER.
✅FACT: While the banana peel in water sounds good, it is a waste of time. To combat BER, you need calcium, and there’s no calcium in a banana peel.

➡️It’s common to see BER on the first tomatoes of the season. While low calcium in fruit is the cause, the real culprit is often drought. Without a steady supply of water, the tiny root hairs dry out, which limits the amount of calcium the plants can absorb and supply to developing fruit. So, don’t let plants wilt between waterings. The best way to reduce the chance of wilting is to mulch around plants.
