My tomato crop this year have almost all developed cracks around the top as they have grown though they taste good. Never had this problem before any ideas please.




skin splitting is usually linked to irregular watering. on very hot days they will have wanted more water than on cooler days. but if you have given the same amounts each day that will be why. as you say still perfectly edible.

Yes, irregular watering! Often worse than yours though some split quite badly. I have watched out for this lately and for the first time, so splitting or scoring, so I did it right yay!
