Default Blossom Drop or Something Else?

One of my Crnkovic Yugoslavian tomato plants has lost and is continuing to lose its flowers always like the following photos show. Is this stress related blossom drop or something else?

First this happens

Then this happens

And finally this is all that is left

Indeed, if you added them as attachments. But, I think it's quite obvious I'm signed in since I'm posting.

Apparently the links to the photos in the original post are invalid. I have no idea why I can see the pictures but you can't.

I apologize for this. I will try to edit the original post.

O.K. I re-uploaded the images and corrected the URLs to the images in the original post.

I can see the pictures in Google chrome browser and Internet Explorer as well.

No pictures for me either. Says links are invalid. You can download free photo sizing apps and use those, then the paper clip on the go advanced post and get your actual photos to load rather than links. I size to 600 X 800.

Hi ginger2778:

Can you have another look at the original post? I have yet again re-edited and re-inserted the pictures.

If this doesn't work then I give up.

I see the images just fine and they look like exactly what has been happening to mine. I assume it is the result of the weather we have been having. Mine are in containers, not in the ground. There is lots of fruit set already so I am not worried. Sooner or later the weather will improve. I sure hope so as I do not want to contend with early blight too! Not all of mine are under cover.

Here's a good link on the topic.

I think it is normal blossom drop due to no fruit set, is it very hot by you? I do wonder why the pedicel has broken halfway.

It was hot in May, cooled down somewhat in June.

Pedicel! Yes I was trying to find that word.

Thanks to you (pedicel) and Worth1 (abcission), I now have the words I need to check out relevant literature on Google. I have already found this

Development and regulation of pedicel abscission in tomato

available at

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4462994/

It looks deep but may be useful.

All the flowers on my Crnkovic Yugoslavian start to separate in the same pedicel abcission zone behind the flower. I've got a Stupice beside it and it is not suffering from flower drop.

Are there any technically correct tomato blossom drop images that you can refer me to?
