2020 Fruits and Vegetables

  • Celebrates the tradition of using fruits and vegetables as subjects for still lifes


Stamp Category: 
Definitive
Value:  55¢ First Class Mail Rate (Forever)
First Day of Issue:  July 17, 2020
First Day City:  Charleston, West Virginia
Quantity Issued:  200,000,000
Printed by:  Banknote Corporation of America
Printing Method:  Offset
Format:  Double-sided booklets of 20
Tagging:  Phosphor tagged paper, block

Why the stamps were issued:  To show off the simple beauty of fruits and vegetables.

About the stamp designs:  Each of the 10 stamp designs pictures a different fruit or vegetable.  Existing artwork by Robert Papp.

First Day City:  According to the USPS, Charleston, West Virginia, was chosen for the First Day of Issue postmark because of the city’s famous Capitol Market, a year-round farmers’ market and nonprofit organization.  There was no First Day of Issue Ceremony due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

History the stamp represents:  As time goes on, we learn more about how to eat healthier and live longer.  And one of the most important parts of a healthy lifestyle is eating plenty of fruits and vegetables (especially vegetables).  Grocery stores and farmers’ markets have plenty of fresh produce available, but one of the most fun and satisfying ways to get your fill is by growing your own.

In the past, it was necessary to have a yard or other large space for a garden, but today that has changed.  Now, there are lots of options to grow fruits and vegetables in almost any space.  There are community gardens where each person gets a plot of land to plant in (or works together on the entire garden), outdoor container planting, and indoor grow lights and hydroponic setups.  All these options make growing your own food easier than ever before.

Some of the easiest species to grow when first starting out are lettuce, tomatoes, eggplant, strawberries, peppers, carrots, and beans.  These fruits and vegetables will grow well almost anywhere with very little time and effort required.  Plus there are countless online resources, like Farmers’ Almanac, that give plenty of tips and tricks for both new and seasoned gardeners.  Some of these tips include when to start your seedlings, whether to start them indoors or outdoors, when to transplant to a bigger pot, and how to acclimate young plants to colder temperatures.

Wherever you live, you can grow your own fruits and vegetables.  It is highly rewarding – especially since you get to eat the final product!
