I have had some trouble with mine rotting also and I think in my case it is the amount of water they were or were not getting on a regular basis this summer. It was so dry here that I could not keep up watering everything. I was just talking to a gentleman who owns a veggie stand down the road about fried green tomatoes. He has never had them and doesn't know if he wants to try them. I love them.
They might also need more calcium in the soil - depending on which end is rotting - you could take a sample to your local "real" garden center (not Lowe's or Home Depot, whose staff don't know too awfully much, generally speaking, about gardening) and ask them for advice, too -
