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

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?
