USDA: APPLES/APPLESAUCE AND PINEAPPLES ACCOUNTED FOR 56% OF CANNED FRUIT AVAILABILITY
Source: USDA news release

According to ERS's food availability data, 14.2 pounds per capita of canned fruit were available for consumption by U.S. consumers in 2010-14, down after averaging 21 pounds per person in 1990-94 and 25.1 pounds per person in 1970-74.

Canned apple and applesauce availability was 4.1 pounds per person in 2010-14, while canned pineapple availability -the second highest -was 3.9 pounds per person.

With the exception of olives, per person availability fell for all canned fruit between 1970-74 and 2010-14.

For example, in 1970-74 canned peaches led canned fruit availability at 6.5 pounds per person, but dropped to 2.7 pounds per person in 2010-14-a 58-percent decline.

The availability of canned pears fell from 3.8 pounds per person in 1970-74 to 2 pounds per person in 2010-14.

One reason for declines in canned fruit availability is that some consumers switched to fresh fruit.

Canned fruit's share of total U.S. fruit availability decreased from 10.6 percent in 1970-74 to 5.6 percent in 2010-14, while fresh fruit availability grew by 34.5 pounds per person and boosted fresh fruit's share from 41 percent to 52 percent.

The data for this chart are from ERS's Food Availability (Per Capita) Data System.
