Could anyone tell me where I would find my the answer to the following questions? I am writing a book about gardening.

1. How many fruits and berries exist across the world?

2. How many US residents grow their own fruits and berries?

Thanks so much!

Wow, thats a tall order

I would suggest doing a Google search on the first question. should get you in the ballpark

As for the second, you could try the "World Almanac and book of Facts" or ask at your local Extensions office if they have access to that kind of info.

That's all I can think of at the moment.
