It’s been a fair bit of time since I last posted information on the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 and over the years, the information does change as you can see in this list I posted 2-3 years ago.
For those of you who have not heard of these terms simply put the Dirty Dozen includes produce you always want to aim to buy organic and the Clean 15 includes produce that is okay to buy not organic, hence the pesticide content in the non-organically grown produce is not rationally different to the organic version. See below for the lists.
- Sweet bell peppers
- Nectarines – imported
- Blueberries – domestic
- Sweet corn
- Sweet peas
- Sweet potato
