The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has a list of the one dozen fruits and vegetables highest in pesticides. These are best avoided unless purchased organic. Their dirty dozen includes, in alphabetical order:

  • apples
  • bell peppers (sweet)
  • celery
  • cherries
  • grapes
  • lettuce
  • nectarines
  • peaches
  • pears
  • potatoes
  • spinach
  • strawberries

With fruit season almost upon us, I hope this list is useful.
