Hello –

Blossom end rot is an environmental problem most often caused by uneven watering or by calcium deficiency. The simplest treatment is therefore pre-treatment: make sure soil is rich in all necessary nutrients (including calcium), and water regularly. Mulches also help maintain even moisture levels.

Hope this helps!
