Oftentimes this is caused by uneven watering. This can happen when you have long periods of dry conditions followed by a big rainfall, or an abundance of water. 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.
