More information:

Close-up of Gold Nugget cherry tomatoes growing with a split in them in Issaquah, Washington, USA. Tomatoes split because of fluctuations in the amount of water they get. If it's been very dry, and then all of a sudden you get a couple of inches of rain, the insides of the tomatoes grow faster than the outer skin is able to, and the tomatoes crack. It happens more often to tomatoes that are starting to ripen, mainly because the outer skin becomes more fragile the closer a tomato gets to ripening.
