It makes sense to buy organically the fruits and vegetables likely to contain the most pesticides in non-organic brands. Consumer Reports found the following fruits and vegetables to have the highest levels of toxicity, and therefore recommends you splurge for their organic counterparts.
Fruits: cranberries, nectarines, peaches strawberries, pears, apples, cherries, cantaloupe.
Vegetables: Green beans, sweet bell peppers, celery cucumbers, potatoes, tomatoes, peas, lettuce.
