Blossom End RotYour tomatoes are probably suffering Blossom End Rot, something that happens when calcium to the blossom is insufficient and can be caused by low soil calcium levels, too rapid plant growth (calcium moves very slowly through the plant), soil moisture levels fluctuating too much inhibiting uptake of calcium. Since you are growing these in pots I'd suspect some of all of those are at work.

What growing medium are you using?
Do you let the pot dry out before watering, or are you keeping it evenly moist?
