In a farmers market in Alabama, a bushel of fresh apples must weigh 50 pounds—or the container is not considered a bushel. This four-page publication provides producers and sellers of produce with necessary information about the containers and weights acceptable in Alabama and in the general marketplace. Includes easy-to-read tables of fruit, vegetable, and nut container weights for the produce industry, for national markets, and for Alabama farmers markets.
