Apples are spliting from stem to flower end.  I am researching this for the Latah MG service.  Moscow Idaho.

Expert Response

Apple fruit cracking, particularly where it starts at the stem end, is often the result of the fruit becoming over ripe.

What was the cultivar and when did it start cracking?

You might send some pictures and a description to Dr. Essie Fallahi at the University of Idaho facility in Parma.
