Limes cracking while still on bush

Anonymous added on August 8, 2015 | Answered

I have a Mexican Lime bush. I noticed this past week that 2 out of the 20+ limes have cracked. What has caused this? Note: We have been experiencing avg 105 deg F heat index the past couple weeks. I have been watering almost daily.
