Fruits & Vegetable Pesticides

Of the 48 different fruit and vegetable categories tested
by the EWG( Environmental Working Group) for the 2013 guide, the following 15 fruits and vegetables had the highest pesticide load, making them the most important to buy or grow organically:


Apples

Celery

Cherry Tomatoes

Cucumbers

Grapes

Hot Peppers

Nectarines (imported)

Peaches

Potatoes

Spinach

Strawberries

Sweet Bell Peppers

Kale

Collard Greens

Summer Squash

 


In contrast, the following foods were found to have the lowest residual pesticide load, making them the safest bet among conventionally grown vegetables. Note that a small amount of sweet corn and most Hawaiian papaya, although low in pesticides, are genetically engineered (GE). If you’re unsure of whether the sweet corn or papaya is GE, I’d recommend opting for organic varieties:


Asparagus

Avocado

Cabbage

Cantaloupe

Sweet Corn (non-GMO)

Eggplant

Grapefruit

Kiwi

Mango

Mushrooms

Onions

Papayas (non-GMO. Most Hawaiian papaya is GMO)

Pineapple

Sweet Peas (frozen)

Sweet Potatoes
