This is caused by uneven watering. It can happen when you have long periods of dry followed by a big rainfall. The plant is so thirsty that it sucks up water faster than it can grow and the fruit splits. To avoid this, make sure to water evenly and often. A drip system with a timer is a great way to avoid this.
