What fruits and vegetables are most popular among ethnic groups?


Q. Hi. Do you know of any lists of popular fruits and vegetables by race/ethnicity? Thanks


A. Fruit and vegetable intake can depend on many variables including: cultural influence, availability, personal preference, and budget to name a few. Fruit and vegetables that are part of Asian dishes for example include peas, hot peppers, bok choy, pineapple, mango, purple potatoes, and oranges. Produce that is popular in Hispanic cuisine is hot peppers, onion, cilantro, Calabaza, okra, and eggplant to name a few. African diets include cabbages, onions, garlic, potatoes, peaches, berries, and mango. For more ideas on produce that is popular amongst ethnic groups, visit different markets or restaurants and try their cuisine.
