When purchasing fresh produce from the grocery stores, wash well before eating. The following items are the highest in pesticides: Apples, Bell Peppers, Celery, Cherries, Chile Peppers, Imported Grapes, Nectarines, Peaches, Pears, Raspberries, Strawberries and Tomatoes.

Good reminder since this is the season for wonderful fruit. I also read to wash melons, as the pesticides will get on the knife when slicing. In the summer I shop at the Farmer's Market since they are all organic but still will rinse my produce.
