What is the national fruit of the USA

Did you know that the US even has a National Peanut Day?

It's September 13th. However, there are no school days on that day. That would also be absurd, because the peanut plays a particularly important role in everyday school life: Traditionally, most American children have peanut butter on their lunch break. By the time they left high school, all students ate an average of 1,500 of the sandwiches. Delicious! The Americans' love for peanuts goes deeper and so it is understandable that they have set up a kind of memorial day for their favorite legume. Two presidents had peanut fields, some still grow in the White House's vegetable garden, and states like Georgia have become famous for their peanut fields. The fruit shapes the country's gardens, landscapes and cuisine. There are even six places that have the peanut in their names: Peanut, California; Lower Peanut, Pennsylvania; Upper Peanut, Pennsylvania; Peanut, Pennsylvania; Peanut, Tennessee; and Peanut in West Virginia.
