Strange yellow spots on ripe tomatoes

9 years ago


I have a Sweet Million cherry tomato that's producing a lot of fruit, but most have strange yellow spots on them. I've looked at pictures online, and the closest I've found suggest that this is stink bug damage or sunscald. I've never seen stink bugs in my garden, and this isn't happening to my other 4 tomato plants. The flesh looks and tastes fine underneath the yellowed skin, so it's basically a cosmetic problem.

Any ideas what it is? I posted this question as a follow-up to a previous post, linked below, but didn't get a response. The other thread has a couple pictures of foliage damage on the same plant, which I'm thinking is early blight, but these yellow spots don't look like the pictures of blight damaged-fruit I've found.
