I'm growing one Roma tomato in a pot (the rest in GrowBoxes) that has had blossom rot from the get-go. But the tomatoes are also ripening too quickly--they're the shape of Romas, but the size of grape tomatoes. For the rot, I've tried a "miracle" spray a friend gave me (no label but directions: spray blossoms, three times, five to seven days between), bone meal, moving the plant out of partial shade. None of it has worked. For the ripening problem, I have no clue.
Any advice?

For the rot issues, try putting powdered milk and Epsom salt in the hole when you plant your tomato seedlings.

Select Yogurt and milk having Calcium and vitamin-D. Add one cup of yogurt to 3 cups of milk and churn it to make uniform liquid.Feed this liquid to plants every day for few days.I hope this will help to solve the problems.
