This is the question that people ponder every time they are in a grocery store. So to help clarify there are a few simple tricks as to when organic produce is necessary and when its not worth the extra $$.
Ask yourself "Do I eat the skin"? If the answer is yes then choose ORGANIC!
examples are- berries, peppers, celery, apples etc
If the produce has a thick skin that is not eaten then organic is not necessary.
examples are- coconuts, pineapple, onions, bananas etc.
Hope this helps clarify!
