Are you getting your daily recommended servings of fruit? Americans consume only an average of 1.4 servings of fruit daily, far less than the recommended 4 servings. Apples, oranges, grapes, and bananas are the fruits Americans turn to most and the largest fruit-producing states are California, Washington, and Florida. The U.S. expenditure for nuts is also on the rise with almonds, pecans, and walnuts among the favorites. California’s warm climate helps the state to lead the way in production of grapes, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, kiwifruit, and tree nuts. Florida is almost synonymous with citrus fruits, just as Washington is with apples.
