For the first time, I'm getting some plums off of a number of my trees -
Red Heart, Superior, and Kanga (sp?). Most of the plums on all the trees are
cracked - split skin, some leaking. Any cultural techniques that I can use
to reduce this problem?

As an aside, I have one seedling tree from a Green Gage fruit I bought in the
supermarket that is also fruiting for the first time. No signs of cracking
on this one, so far.
