Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: Know your enemy! 

Radial cracks mar the top of your ripening tomatoes? 
Tomatoes crack when there has been rapid growth, usually due to irregular watering patterns. I heavy rain after a long drought will cause cracking.
Solution: Try to maintain even soil moisture or grow crack tolerant varieties.
