I see some splitting there, and I'm thinking that heavy rain just before a bunch ripens causes this. My last bunch of Hawaiian Apples started splitting even before cutting the bunch, but I have found that if you separate the hands it will slow down the splitting.

There is a lot of splitting and we had the heavy rains a couple of weeks ago.

Yeah, it seems like in the summer when there is no rain my fruits never split. Cutting the bunch before they ripen on the plant might help some too.
