Tomatoes black at stems' ends

What is the cause for tomatoes turning black at their stems' ends, please? A virus?

In advance, thank you for your support!


Alas, photo too large. Alas, have forgotten how to cut them down.

Hi David,
Thank you for your advice.

However, should have been clearer: We are in the middle of winter. These are store bought tomatoes. They weren't black when I received them. Just wanted to know what kind of disease or virus, this is and what it caused by.

Cheers from Tassie, Australia,
