Pesticides in Produce

I always think about sharing this list when I pull it out at the grocery store. Today I actually remembered it here at the house. These items are consistently the most contaminated with pesticides - buy these organic:

apples, bell peppers, celery, cherries, imported grapes, lettuce, nectarines, peaches, pears, potatoes, spinach, strawberries, & carrots

These items have the lowest levels of pesticides:
asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, sweet corn, eggplant, kiwi, mangos, onions, papaya, pineapples, sweet peas, & cabbage
