USDA: Tomatoes, potatoes, most commonly consumed vegetables
The decline was largest for potatoes (34.5 pounds) due to decreased production, followed by carrots (7 pounds), head lettuce (6.1 pounds), and tomatoes (4.2 pounds).
Despite declines in potato and tomato consumption, these two vegetables still dominate U.S. vegetable consumption.
In 2011, 86.3 pounds per person of tomatoes and 83 pounds of potatoes (not including dehydrated and chips) were available for Americans to eat.
French fries and pizza from fast-food restaurants and grocery stores contribute to the high consumption of these two vegetables.
The third highest vegetable, sweet corn, came in at 24.1 pounds per person in 2011.
