    Organic vs. Regular Produce

    I like to eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, at least I make every effort to. Problem is the organic produce at the grocery store I go to is not very good. I eat a lot of apples, but the apples there are bad, like they were frozen(for transit) and thawed. I can just tell something is wrong with them by the flavor and texture. THey are definitely not fresh. This is a problem with much of the organic produce.

    I want to eat organic because I don't want to ingest all the chemicals that are put on regualr fruits and vegetables. My question is this: What regular(non-organic) fruits and vegetables have very little pesticides/chemicals, on them so that I can eat them and not worry. I have heard that avocados are good in that they don't contain much of that bad stuff, and that things like green and red bell peppers retain a lot of the bad chemicals. So what things retain very little and which ones could be made "clean" by washing?

    It allows you to see which pesticides are on which fruits/veggies...
