why are apples splitting on the trees?

On plant katie



Lack of water? Or irregular supply of water...

Agree with Moon Grower - if the tree goes short of water when the fruit is present, the fruit stops swelling - once water arrives, the fruit grows really rapidly and the skin can't keep up and splits...
