You are watching: How much does a bushel of peas weigh

Okay, that is the question. Just how much does a true bushel of violet hull peas sweet in the hull? under here, most every one of the van patch and U-Pick farmers say a bushel the peas is two 5 gallon buckets full. I"ve also heard that a bushel that peas need to weigh around 23 pounds. Appears something is not rather right as I have to put practically 3 buckets in a bag to with 23 pounds, and also yes, my peas space filled out good.What is the consensus?
I"ve constantly thought 25 lbs. For peas and also 30 lbs. For butterbeans. I had actually one fellow come to my u-pick and also carefully layed the peas in 5 gallon bucket, pack them down and got over a bushel in one bucket, after ~ this ns went native by the bucket come by the pound.
Getting 25 lb into one 5 gal bucket seems impossible to me. I would certainly make much more profit utilizing the two-5 gal bucket bushel measurement. That is uneven my scales are means way off. Ns prolly need to inspect them.
