thanks for the help! I really don't see birds around here much but I've shown the pic to a few others as well and they all said inconsistent watering. :/imafan26 wrote:Some of the cracking looks like it is from watering unevenly. Concentric cracking is primarily from a watering issue. The other could be birds. Either you are very lucky or there are better things in the neighborhood, the birds in my yard would never let a tomato get past the first blush unless it is netted unless it doesn't taste that great, then they leave it alone.
Good call. I do something similar as well.mattie g wrote:I put ripe, splitting tomatoes in the fridge. When I have a good number of them, I core and seed them and put them in freezer bags to use in sauces and salsas later on.

A good rain shower can also cause cracking. Also a type of inconsistent watering. Too much water intake causes swelling fruit faster than the skin can keep up.lukeout007 wrote:
I went out to harvest my tomatoes last night and found that most of the ripe ones look like this. I only ended up getting 1 edible tomato. Can someone shed some light on what could be causing this?
