If you are unable to purchase them organic, at least the conventional variety will not have as high of pesticide residues as other produce. It may not have the FLAVOR or the NUTRIENT level that is found in local organic produce however.

In 2013, the analysis found 165 different pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables. In some produce, the pesticides can PERSIST EVEN AFTER THE PRODUCE IS WASHED AND EVEN PEELED.
