‘Dirty Dozen’ warning: Fruits and veggies rank on danger list

Fruits and vegetables with the highest and lowest pesticide residues.

  • strawberries
  • spinach
  • kale, collard and mustard greens
  • nectarines
  • apples
  • grapes
  • bell and hot peppers
  • cherries
  • peaches
  • pears
  • celery
  • tomato

Consumers should simply rinse the fruit or vegetable with tap water and gently scrub, without soaps, to remove most residues from the outside and to avoid eating the outer layer of lettuces and leafy greens.


Although, I always use a mix of water, baking soda powder and vinegar to rinse the veggies. With fruits I only use water.
