Dirty Dozen & Clean Fifteen?


Dirty Dozen!
Here's a list of the produce that tend to have the highest level of residue from pesticides on them (after being washed and peeled). These are the produce you would want to spend a little extra money on buying organic.

  1. Apples
  2. Strawberries
  3. Grapes
  4. Celery
  5. Peaches
  6. Spinach
  7. Sweet Bell Peppers
  8. Imported Nectarines
  9. Cucumbers
  10. Cherry Tomatoes
  11. Imported Snap Peas
  12. Potatoes



Clean Fifteen!
These items are the ones that don't necessarily need to be bought organic, because they are found to have the least amount of pesticide contamination.

  1. Avocados
  2. Sweet Corn
  3. Pineapples
  4. Cabbage
  5. Frozen Sweet Peas
  6. Onions
  7. Asparagus
  8. Mangos
  9. Papayas
  10. Kiwis
  11. Eggplant
  12. Grapefruit
  13. Cantaloupe
  14. Cauliflower
  15. Sweet Potatoes

Enjoy!
