My toms are gradually going red (or orange, as the new trialed variety are), but I have had a few split. I'll take on board the comments about over watering, makes sense. I am grateful to have any tomatoes. This year has been mad, my favourite crunchy mini cucumber (Picolino) is behaving very strangely; when it starts to form a fruit it grows into the shape of a tiny butternut squash and as it matures it fills out to become a perfect 3-4" cue. Crisp and lovely as ever. They didn't do that last year or before, maybe this crazy weather keeps putting the brakes on the growth? It looks like a half inflated long balloon!
