Whether or not you garden, it is interesting to think about which vegetables, fruits, and herbs require less water to irrigate. I had a hard time finding an official chart online, but with a little research, some advice from growers, and personal experience, I can offer the following. I discovered the organization Waterfootprint.org, and got the figures at the bottom from them. This whole issue is important in California where all of the produce below are grown in massive quantities, but it is just as relevant to those who rely on California farms for their food. If you are a gardener, I found this handy guide (takes a minute to load, but worth it) that goes over a bunch of irrigation basics for gardens, it is not focused on vegetable gardens specifically.
Think about this when you are
-at the market
-ordering from a menu
-planning your garden
