Do you ever see produce that is sold for a “bushel” somewhere, and then you see someone else selling the same thing “per pound” ~ you wonder which is the better deal? So how many pounds are in a bushel?…Well it depends on what it is! A bushel of spinach leaves is going to weigh a whole lot different than a bushel of peaches. I found this handy list that tells about how much a bushel is for different grains and produce. I hope it helps you too!
I found peaches for $1.89 a pound, and then someone else selling them for $20 a bushel. According to this chart, it would cost me about $94.50 to buy a bushel of peaches at $1.89 a pound. So obviously I went with the bushel for $20 this time! 😉
I hope you’re enjoying buying or growing fresh produce as much as I am!
