How Many Pounds Are There in a Bushel of Peanuts?
A bushel of green peanuts is 22 pounds, according to the Illinois General Assembly. The University of Florida states a bushel of Valencia peanuts is between 30 and 35 pounds.
The weight of peanuts depends on various factors, including moisture content, size of shells and weight of the pods. Peanuts with larger pods may weigh less per bushel because the shells take up more volume but not as much weight.
A bushel is 32 quarts, or 8 gallons, in the United States. The government has standard weights for bushels of various agricultural products. For instance, a bushel of tomatoes is 56 pounds, and a bushel of corn is 70 pounds.
