Confused about what and when to buy organic when it comes to produce?

April 01, 2018 1 min read

We like to stick to the Dirty Dozen & Clean 15 rule of thumb. Avoiding the most contaminated produce will substantially reduce dietary pesticide risks.

The Dirty Dozen aka 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables to buy organic are peaches, strawberries, apples, nectarines, pears, cherries, raspberries, grapes, spinach, celery, potatoes, & bell peppers.

The Clean 15 aka commercial vegetables that appear to have the least amount of pesticides are sweet corn, avocado, cauliflower, asparagus, onions, peas, and broccoli. The fruits least likely to have pesticide residues on them are pineapples, mangoes, bananas, kiwi, and papaya.
