26 1/2 pounds of tomatoes equals half a bushel. Because each kind of tomato has a varied size, there are varying numbers of tomatoes in a bushel.
Due to the constant handling of huge quantities of produce in the food manufacturing, distribution, and retail sectors, bushels are frequently utilised in these sectors. About 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 pounds, or 1 quart, of processed, canned tomatoes are produced from a bushel of tomatoes. For various produce types, different bushels are used. For instance, a bushel of cabbage weighs only 2 to 6 lbs. whereas a bushel of broccoli weighs 23 to 25 lbs.
