Tomatoes and peppers are probably the most popular. Nearly every vegetable gardener will grow tomatoes unless their climate is unsuitable. Heirloom varieties have seen a resurgence in popularity as have Asian and other gourmet varieties and specialty greens. If you need detailed survey data you might wish to contact the National Gardening Association directly for specific research data.
