Our tomatoes are splitting and it's ruining our whole crop!

We live in NW Arkansas. Torrents of rain all through May, then weekly to by weekly rain through the last couple of weeks in June. Hot temps, average around mid 90's, mid 70's nighttime.

Fruit looks beautiful on top, but turn it over and it's split and the flesh is hard & brown in the splits. Four of us have talked (3 bought from a local nursery, 1 from the co-op) and we are all having much the same issue.
