Citrus fruit cracking is caused by an uneven or irregular watering, such as when you have a drought and then suddenly you get an abundance of rain. This moisture causes the skin to swell and eventually crack or split open. This article for cracking oranges should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/oranges/oranges-splitting.htm
