Craigella Tomato

Why Are My Tomatoes Splitting Open on the Vine?

I planted Craigella tomatoes and they are beginning to ripen. The skin is splitting open before I can pick them. These are small tomatoes (2" d. ) and the split is wide enough to ruin the fruit. Why is this happening and what can I do to prevent it?
