Most consumed fruits in the United States in 2018

Most consumed fruits in the U.S. 2018 Americans consume a variety of fruits in their everyday lives; a 2018 survey found that bananas were the most widely purchased fruit among U.S. consumers. In that year, 69 percent of the survey respondents had bought bananas in the past 12 months. Apples, grapes, and strawberries were also widely consumed by U.S. consumers.
Bananas in the United States

Bananas are particularly affordable fruit in the United States. A pound of bananas in the United States retailed for about 58 cents in 2018. On average, Americans ate 28.5 pounds of bananas per capita in 2017, significantly more than any other fruit. In U.S. grocery stores, bananas made up an 11 percent share of overall fruit dollar sales.

Fruit consumption in the United States

Fruit has long been praised as a healthy and natural alternative to processed sweets and refined sugar. Per capita consumption of fruit in the United States has seen an overall decline between 2000 and 2017. However, much of this decrease can be attributed to canned fruit becoming less popular among Americans.
