Welcome. It is called Blossom End Rot. Very common on early fruit is is most commonly caused by inconsistent watering.

BER is the bane of my exsistance!! It effects paste tomatoes really badly and slicing tomatoes not as badly. It is caused by not enough calcium in the fruit. It may have nothing to do with the amount of calcium in the soil, as tests have shown that when a plant is hot (thereby stressed) there is large amounts of calcium in the stem of the tomato plant and leaves just not in the fruit itself. Here is a link that you might find helpful. Blossom End Rot
