If you are on a budget and need to decide the priority of your organic purchases, or you would simply like to know which type of produce has the highest pesticide residues—and which do not—the following guide from Herbal Goodness will help.

12 Most Contaminated
  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Celery
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries
  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Grapes (Imported)
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Potatoes
12 Least Contaminated
  • Onions
  • Avocado
  • Sweet Corn (Frozen)
  • Pineapples
  • Mango
  • Asparagus
  • Sweet Peas (Frozen)
  • Kiwi Fruit
  • Bananas
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Papaya
   

 

Always try to purchase fruits and vegetables in season and from a co-op or farmers market when possible. Freshness is key to your health as a 30-day old cabbage is not as beneficial as being picked yesterday.
