Top 12 fruit and veg you should buy organic

We are all aware that organic food is best for health – however, it is usually not healthy on the bank balance!

To maximize the most gain out of a budget, I researched the top most heavily sprayed fruit and veg with the highest residual pesticide, which I try to buy organic if I can:

  1. Strawberries
  2. peaches
  3. grapes
  4. apples
  5. nectarines
  6. celery
  7. bell peppers
  8. cherries
  9. tomatoes
  10. spinach
  11. cucumbers
  12. potatoes

(kale is increasingly becoming highly sprayed too… )

I also have a list of ‘clean’ fruit and veg which I often buy ‘conventionally farmed’ as these are often low in pesticide residue:

  1. onions
  2. sweetcorn (but look out for GMO!!)
  3. avocado
  4. pineapple
  5. asparagus
  6. cabbage
  7. mangoes
  8. kiwis
  9. honeydew
  10. mushrooms
  11. sweet potato
  12. watermelon
