Fruit Cracking in Greenhouse Tomatoes
Fruit cracking can be a significant problem for a greenhouse tomato grower. In recent years, many New England growers have reported problems with fruit cracking. In northern New England, growers frequently report that visible cracks appear on fruit following heavy morning fogs in the valleys where the greenhouses were located. These conditions frequently occur late in the crop when cool nights follow hot humid days.
