10 Fruits & Veggies That You Don't Need to Buy Organic

A trip through the Produce Dept at the grocery store always leaves me wondering if "organic" is really necessary.  I care as much as anyone about food safety.  I ran across the following list of fruits and veggies that don't need to be organic on I-Village:

          Sweet Corn
          Sweet Peas

Most of these have either a pod or thick skin that protect the fruit or veggie inside from pesticides or pests.  Others are grown quickly and don't attract pests or grow underground.

Keep this in mind for your next trip through the produce department at your grocery store.
