Cracked tomato skin
by: Green Buffalo

Most gardeners will agree that the reason for cracking skin on tomatoes is uneven watering. Generally it is a lack of water situation causing the skin on the tomato to be tight and then a lot of water at once causing the tomato to swell and crack the skin
On cherry tomatoes you will often see to fruit split in half when this situation occurs. I also have seen skin splitting on my lemon tree plant for the same reason.
