U.S. Fresh Market Tomato Production Statistics (1993 - 1997)

Florida, California, Georgia and Virginia are the leading producers of fresh market tomatoes in the U.S., although some of the fresh produce available in winter is imported from Mexico and Israel, or from Dutch greenhouses. The 1997 U.S. fresh market tomato crop was harvested from 125,370 acres with a total yield of 37,809,000 cwt (average yield = 302 cwt/acre) and a total value of $1,246,843,000. In 1997, U.S. production of fresh market tomatoes was up about 9.4% from 1996.

The following data shows production (cwt), harvested acres, yield (cwt/acre) and total value ($) of the fresh market tomato crop for the major fresh market tomato producing states for the period 1993 to 1997.
