Why are my tomatoes splitting?

grandma_gardener_02August 26, 2010

I know this is very unusual weather this year, but I have this problem in other years as well.

Also, is anyone else having trouble with their tomatoes not ripening at this late date? I have loads of green ones, but they are only SLOWLY ripening.

Here are several previous discussions about splitting, its cause, and tips on preventing. Thought you might want to read through them for information.

Thank you digdirt. I did read through the discussions, and it was very helpful. I think I may be watering too much out of concern that with the high temps they would suffer. Will try laying off on the watering to see if that helps the rest of my tomatoes.
