Green tomatoes shriveling in Texas

by Matt Crowe
(Eldorado texas)

I have about 15 tomato plants that are different varieties yet many of them are growing green tomatoes that are shriveling up - soft loose skin - as if someone turned a hair dryer on them. I am located in central Texas and our May was filled with 100 degree plus days - still very hot and only 3.2” of rain since Jan 1st. I deep water them once a week on drip system. I’ve grown tomatoes for over 50 years and have never had this happen. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. These plants are located in Eldorado Tx in schleicher county. These plants are in 100% clay and in the sun all day. Thanks. Matt Crowe
