Default Splitting Tomatos

I keep my garden moist throughout the season too, but still after a good
raining, they all split. These are cherry tomatoes. Shame, but you learn to
live with it, and pick tomatoes in the rain.

G'day Tom,

The weird thing is that I have grown them before with no problems. It is
only since we moved to Northern Queensland that I have seen this

happening.

Ah! Well! I might try another variety next season.

Thanks anyway.

G'day all,

I have a penchant for growing old varieties of Tomatos.

At the moment I am growing a variety called "Tigrella".

It seems that a lot of the fruit that I pick are splitting.
Am I watering the poor little fella's too much, or could there
be another reason for this?


Hi.

I also grew a variety of tomatoes this year. Out of all the tomatoes
I grew, only the Tigerellas split (not all of them, about 20%).
Perhaps it's in their nature to do so.

Normally splitting is caused by not enough water, followed by a good
soaking, but I kept my garden moist throughout the growing season.
