Tomatoes crack on the vein stem axis from to much water. 
Huge increases in the amount of water cause a growth spurt in the tomato.
The fleshy tissue of the fruit will grow much more quickly than the skin, causing the skin to split.
The fruit is OK but the tomato becomes more susceptible to viral infections,
which could kill the fruit or possibly the plant.
