Zucchini splitting

Has anyone else notice that zucchini are splitting after you bring them home? I bought some zucchini yesterday, woke up this morning and found one of them a 3" split down the side. When bought them I noticed some were split, didn't think much about it, figured they were dropped, woke up this morning to find one split. I have never seen this before. Has anyone else noticed this?

Not Zucks, but some of the grape tomatoes in my garden split.

Nope, all mine are still happily together, no splits.
Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.

I knew I couldn't be the only one! I created a thread about this just a few days ago (though I used slightly different terminology!) - Courgette fissure
