Black Spot on Stem Side of Tomato

Asked July 24, 2016, 6:39 PM EDT

I am just starting to harvest my sun sugar tomatoes and noticed black spots on where the stem is attached to the tomato. What is this? Is there something I can do to have more healthy fruit?

This looks like Early Blight. Are the leaves also yellow or spotted? Here is a link with more information to help you.
