On the Map: California, Florida, and Washington Are Nation's Largest Fruit-Producing States

California accounts for about half of U.S. bearing fruit acreage, Florida almost one-fourth, and Washington around one-tenth. Michigan, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas are also important fruit-producing States and together account for over one-tenth of the Nation's fruit acreage. California is the largest producer of grapes, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, kiwifruit, prunes, and plums; is a major producer of a variety of other noncitrus fruit like apples, pears, and sweet cherries; and ranks second in citrus production. California's fruit-friendly climate gives it an advantage over other fruit-producing States. Florida's primary fruit crop is citrus. Washington is the largest producer of apples and sweet cherries and an important producer of grapes and pears.
