Re: Fruits Are Splitting as They Ripen

I always have issues with cherry tomatoes splitting after a good rain if they were ripe and never got picked in time. If you know the rain is coming pick them before the rain comes is my best advice.

Thanks much.
Try a different variety of cherry tomato see if that helps. Little splits around the top are very common is some tomatoes. Most tomatoes do very well in too much water.
