I have researched fruits and vegetables that have less pesticides and have been buying only those that are more pesticide free. The list of fruits and vegetables ranked from worst to best on pesticide use are:
These are ranked in order with the worst of the bunch, peaches, at #1.
Peaches tend to have the most pesticides of any fruit or vegetable ... so if possible buy these organic.
- Sweet Bell Peppers
- Grapes (Imported)
- Green Beans
- Hot Peppers
- Grapes (Domestic)
According the following produce has the lowest pesticide load, ranked in order with the produce with the absolute lowest pesticides first.
- Sweet corn (Frozen)
