I'm having the same problems. As you said, it's water related. I have never had this cracking problem.Yep, dry followed by rain. I had picked several regular toms before the rain, and some were actually kinda dry and pithy (for a tomato at least). Many of mine are now splitting. Bad, Bad year ... the critters are eating on them (lack of water I suppose), many are rotting as they start to turn (not blossom end rot), and I have about 1/4+ of my plants that started to up and die over the last month (disease of some type) ... plus the normal blossom end rot that I normally fight.
I started a thread on hormworms a week and a half ago.Some of mine are half gone becuause of A hornworm! Friend had 3 at once devouring the plant! They are a moth larvae but where do they live when not on a tomato plant or are they born there?
Me either. I think it's my own fault. I quit watering at the wrong time. They got too dry and then too wet. I have never had a problem with cherries cracking before, even when some of the big ones cracked. I have very few cherries that are not cracked right now.Never seen that before
