    It's blossom end rot.
    I happens due to poor flow of calcium around the plant.
    The reason that happens is due to inconsistent watering.
    If you can correct the watering, the problem will stop and when new fruits form they will not be affected.
    Are your plants able to drain properly?

    Some RHS info here

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Your tomatoes have bottom end rot
    It is usually down to irregular watering this  does not mean your tomatoes are wasted .just slice off the black and use as normal.
