Broccoli stays America’s favorite vegetable in 2019

Broccoli remains Americans’ favorite vegetable, according to a survey conducted by major vegetable brand Green Giant.

The brand polled thousands in the U.S. in an open-ended survey released just in time for National Eat Your Vegetables Day, which is Monday, June 17. Five thousand American consumers ages 13 to 73 agreed to take a survey naming their favorite vegetable. The survey was conducted from April 26, 2019 – May 10, 2019 and the users were recruited through a Suzy poll.

This year, even more states favored broccoli than in 2018, cementing its place as America’s favorite. Among the survey’s other findings:

  • Broccoli Reigns Supreme: For the second year in a row, broccoli holds the number one spot as America’s favorite vegetable with 39 states choosing it as the favorite
  • New Veggies on the Block: Cauliflower (Montana) and asparagus (Alaska) appeared on the map this year as state favorites for the first time
  • Not-So-Hot Potatoes: Only one state voted the potato as its favorite vegetable in 2019 (Arkansas), compared to five states that chose it in 2018
  • So Long, Cucumber: Cucumber is noticeably absent from the list this year. Last year it was the state favorite of New Mexico and Louisiana.
