12 Organic Fruits & Vegetables Worth Paying More For

I’ll keep this post short and sweet…

I am mainly doing this as a reminder to myself but I am sure you can benefit too… 😉

The dirtiest fruits & veggies, known for having high pesticides, (a.k.a. The Dirty Dozen) are…

  1. celery
  2. peaches
  3. strawberries
  4. apples
  5. blueberries
  6. nectarines
  7. bell peppers
  8. spinach
  9. cherries
  10. collard greens
  11. potatoes
  12. imported grapes

Pay the extra to buy the above in the organic section…

The cleanest fruits & veggies (a.k.a. The Clean Fifteen) are…

  1. Onions
  2. Avocados
  3. Sweet Corn
  4. Pineapple
  5. Mangoes
  6. Sweet Peas
  7. Asparagus
  8. Kiwis
  9. Cabbage
  10. Eggplant
  11. Cantaloupe
  12. Watermelon
  13. Grapefruit
  14. Sweet Potatoes
  15. Honeydew Melons

You can save your money on the above by buying them in the normal produce section…

As far as other fruits & veggies go you can buy them at your own discretion. They fit somewhere in the middle.

Hope you enjoy this!

  1. I never really stopped to consider that some organic fruits and vegetables may be more worthwhile than others. I just always see the price difference and go straight back to the pesticide loaded crap. I really should be smarter though.
