How Many Quarts of Tomatoes in a Bushel?

Answer

How many quarts of tomatoes are in a bushel can vary greatly depending on the size of the tomatoes. A bushel is equivalent to eight gallons of dry goods. There are 128 cups in eight gallons, so if each tomato were a cup then there would be 128 tomatoes in a bushel of tomatoes. Of course, many tomatoes are slightly less than a cup in size. With this information, it can be estimated that about 150 tomatoes are in a bushel.

You can get anywhere from 7 quarts to 22 quarts of tomatoes from a bushel. The variance is due to the fact that some people prepare their quarts of tomatoes differently than others. A bushel weighs approximately 56 pounds and you can get quite a bit of canned tomatoes from the bushel. Some of the differences in the amount you can get will depend on how much of the bushel of the tomatoes is viable and can be used for canning.
