We Eat HOW MANY Pounds Of Tomatoes?!
Americans eat an average of 23 pounds of tomatoes each year. But don’t congratulate yourself on a healthy choice just yet – over half of this consumption is in the form of ketchup and tomato sauce. That’s a lot of ketchup!
The scientific name for tomatoes is Lycopersicon lycopersicum, which literally means, “Wolf Peach!” How awesome is that?
