Tomato fields are good at producing tomatoes. Tons and tons of tomatoes.
By weight, California produces more tomatoes than any other crop, and it isn't close. In 2018, the state's farmers produced 12.6 million tons of processing tomatoes, which is nine times more than almonds, and more than double the amount of grapes or hay.
Each year, California farmers fill half a million gondolas like the ones picture above with tomatoes, piling them high enough that a few inevitably fall out on every corner taken by the truck on the way to the processor.
