The U.S. ranks 2nd in tomatoes

According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, in 2010 the United States produced 12,902,000 metric tonnes of tomatoes, or 11.7% of the world’s total tomato production. That was enough to make the United States rank second in that category. China ranked first, producing 41,864,750 tonnes, or 37.9% of the world’s total tomatoes. Just five countries–China, the United States, India, Turkey, and Egypt–produce more than three-quarters of the world’s tomatoes.
