Do you think they were hit with hail? We've had rather a lot this year. It can make scars on the tomatoes and other fruit. Sounds like you have some mold problems as well. You can get that after hail damage too. Also sun scald from damaged leaves.
Nope, no hail not stink bugs.Its on the inside the skin is smooth and blemish free.I thought it could be the type of tomato,I planted Itialia instead of Romas this year.But I have this on all tomatoes every year.we have had lots of rain only 2 or 3 days a week if we are lucky it dont rain.
Stink bug damage IS on the inside and under the skin! They don't take a chunk out of the tomato. Instead, they pierce the skin just like a mosquito would do to a person. What you are seeing are the results of the tomato reacting to the digestive saliva entered by the bug. It's similar to how we react to mosquitoes.
