Why Are My Tomatoes Spliting Open

Question:


Tomatoes are opening up and exposing the inside fruit.


Answer:

It's usually caused by excessive rain or watering after a dry spell. The tomatoes skin will "toughen up" during dry times, and then when a lot of water is taken into the fruit, it swells and cracks open the skin of the tomato.

They are still safe to eat!
