Produce grown with the least amount of pesticides

Yesterday I listed the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen Plus, the annual list of the conventionally-grown produce most contaminated with pesticides. Those are the ones that you most want to buy organic.

Today’s list contains the fifteen least contaminated fruits and veggies. These you can feel pretty safe buying the non-organic, conventionally-farmed version because it won’t be loaded with pesticides.

The EWG’s Clean Fifteen are:

  • Onions
  • Sweet corn (non GMO)
  • Pineapple
  • Avocado
  • Cabbage
  • Sweet peas
  • Asparagus
  • Mangoes
  • Eggplant
  • Kiwi
  • Domestic cantaloupe
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Grapefruit
  • Watermelon
  • Mushrooms
