Answer: Splitting fruit is a physiological problem, a result of environmental conditions rather than a disease. It usually happens when the weather has been dry for an extended period, followed by a great deal of rain. Harvest the fruit and discard the affected oranges. Beginning next spring water your tree regularly, all through the spring and summer months, providing a long, deep soaking each time you water. The fruit should be just fine next season.
