My tomatoes are soft and mushy, There is no sign of any grubs. Could it be the heat?

The varieties are ox heart grosse lisse and also two types of cherry tomatoes.

Answer: Hi Noel, Yes it sounds like either a yeasty rot or just plain baking on the vine, both a result of heat. Common problem at the moment. For this reason I ususally recommend leaving some laterals to grow to provide shade for the fruit under such conditions, otherwise some shadecloth on hot days will help.
