  • Seale, James L., Jr.


The U.S. fresh tomato industry has been growing significantly over the past several decades. However, as a net importer of fresh tomatoes, the United States imported 36% of total fresh tomato consumption in 2002. The objective of this study is to estimate U.S. demand for domestic and import fresh tomatoes using empirical demand models. Conditional price and expenditure elasticities for U.S. fresh tomato demand are estimated.
