I think the right answer is New Jersey.
Amazingly, we have a winner. I'm pretty sure my sources are correct, but it floored me that New Jersey would produce about 2/3 of the world's eggplant. I guess the "Garden State" is properly nicknamed!
Again, I'm still amazed at this piece of trivia.
Another weird horticultural piece of trivia, the county which I'm originally from in Wisconsin, Marathon County, produces about 85% of the Ginseng in the US. I don't know if they still do it, but there used to be a BIG international auction after harvest each year. Pretty profitable business I believe.
Another pointless piece of trivia from TTT.
