Growth Cracking

 

Tomatoes can crack in two ways: radial and concentric. These usually appear as fruit is ripening, and they are often caused by drastic changes in water or temperature. To cut back on problems, try to water regularly, and be sure not to over-water (which can make fruit burst). It's important to remember that cracks don't hurt the taste of your tomatoes. They're not pretty, but they still taste great!
