Similarly, you may ask, can blossom end rot be reversed?
Blossom end rot is caused by two things: a lack of calcium and inconsistent watering. While the best cure to blossom end rot is prevention, it can be reversed once it's started.
What is the fastest way to add calcium to soil?
The most common way to add calcium to soil is to use a soil additive. The two most common soil additives to raise calcium levels are lime and gypsum. Before choosing one, test your soil's pH to figure out which one will work best for your needs. If you need to raise your pH, use lime.
