Tomatoes and peppers are at the top of the Hungarian vegetable consumption list with a respective 9% and 12% share.

Consumption of vegetables and fruits per capita has increased over a decade, said the Southern Horticultural Cooperatives (DélKerTÉSZ) of Szentes (140 km southwest of Budapest), which cooperates with over 500 producers, based on official data.

Although vegetable production is affected by the weather, DélKerTÉSZ already has a solution to minimize the resulting risk, according to their communication. In 2010, on average, less than 38 kg of fruit were consumed per capita, but in 2019, consumption exceeded 53 kg.

Total vegetable consumption, excluding potatoes, also increased. In 2010, this amounted to 48 kg, while nine years later it rose to 53 kg per person.
