I have a large number or tomatoes in my garden that are red and appear ready to harvest but I have found multiple that are brown (fried???) on the bottom. Could this be due to the excessive heat we have had? I water daily. Perhaps I have watered too late in the day and the tomatoes were still wet on one of the really "HOT" days, could that cause this browning??
I have not cut into them yet but am curious if you were to cut away that "fried" portion whether the remainder would still be useable??

Thank you for such a timely response. I will add water and cross my fingers.
