According to the USDA Pesticide Data Program peaches have up to 62 Pesticide Residues and apples come in at 2nd place. Before writing this article I would have guessed apples. Everyone has their own choice in which foods they consume. A few years ago my wife and I decided to buy certain fruits and vegetables organic (mostly those known to have the most pesticide residue). We don’t have a conniption fit if we are out or in a situation where non organic is the only thing available, but we just try to do our best.
