Question: How much is a bushel?
In the United States, a bushel is equal to eight gallons (32 quarts) of a dry product.
Because people can have varying ideas about how much a full bushel basket should hold, the government established standard bushel weights for each type of fruit, vegetable, nut and grain. A bushel of tomatoes, for example is supposed to weigh 56 pounds, while a bushel of corn is supposed to weigh a whopping 70 pounds!
