So when does it pay to spend extra?
The Environmental Working Group, a not-for-profit environmental research organization, offers some help to consumers here. After analyzing more than 100,000 U.S. government pesticide test results, it came up with a report card on produce.
EWG reports the following fruits and vegetables are the most contaminated, meaning it pays to buy organic:
* Bell Peppers
* Grapes (imported)
* Red Raspberries
