We have a Roma tomato plant potted in a pot. The plant itself is doing great. We water it carefully every day. The fruit starts off looking great and we have over 20 Roma tomators growing on the plant. Unfortunately after a few days of growth, the fruit starts forming brown rot spots at the bottom tip of the tomato.

Is the pot large enough.  Does it have good drainage with a hole and some rocks in the bottom.....did you use the mix with the vitamins................you could wait until the sun goes down and mix up 1 teasp liquid hand soap & 1 qt water and spray.  You might have to take them off when they turn orange and let them ripen inside on your countertop.  I never had any luck with tomatoes in container.  Some use 1/2 barrells from whiskey barrells.  Or other large made up container.  Could be too much water and not good drainage.  Tomatoes like full sun and good ventilation.
