indoor lemon tree - what causes fruit to split?

United Kingdom Gb

Once the fruit is almost ripe a split appears and on picking there is little juice



this sounds like it might be due to uneven watering patterns. the juicyness is genetic so you might have a 'dry' one. unless they have been juicy in previous years then it is def a watering problem.
sorry not much help really.

Agree with previous answer - irregular and insufficient watering would cause this.
