The tomato is the most widely grown vegetable in the world.  The French titled it "the apple of love," the Germans  "the apple of paradise."   Whatever it's called, the average American consumes 80 pounds annually.  That  works out to the equivalent of 3.5 ounces per day or 1 small tomato per day.  However Joe Average only eats 24 pounds of it unprocessed, so that leaves a lot of juice, ketchup, salsa, and pizza topping.
