split fruit, mango

Mango bought last year and potted in August flowered and fruited. Only two fruit survived but both developed the split as shown. How can I avoid it this year?. I am in Canberra, the trees get full sun in winter and summer but moved under pergola during winter. The plant is healthy.

Usually happens when plant takes up too much water - like oranges splitting. Mine from August purchase flowered like crazy but removed to get more growth so it can hold fruit better in 2 years or more -- yes it does take time - I have one nice fruit on my Nam Doc after 3+ years but has enough leaves to hold more maybe next season too - to note - Plant in Front(Alphonso Aug 2016 purchase) NDM 2014 note the trunk size and quality & size of fruit - worth the wait canbgrower :)

Thank you, your explanation makes sense and I will modify the soil and watering regime this winter.

I forgot - keep fairly dry potting mix until it warms up to 20c+ in spring too - Its wont need it as not transpiring much and could get root rot if too wet.
