Is this Blossom End Rot?

I believe I have blossom end rot but I am not sure what to do about it. I have used tomato tone fertilizer but I am not sure if its getting better.

Your photo was truncated and distorted but we can see the blossom-end rot symptom on your fruits. The key to preventing BER is adequate soil calcium levels and consistent watering.

In the vast majority of cases the direct cause is not a lack of calcium but a lack of water. This is made worse by the overuse of nitrogen fertilizers. jt
