Which Fruit Has The Most Pesticides ?

The Environmental Working Group tested more then 35,000 samples of fruits and veggies to find out which ones have the highest level of pesticide residue.

While strawberries certainly taste sweet, it turns out they have a menacing side to them. 98% of strawberries tested had some kind of pesticide residue, and apples came in a close second.

Apples and strawberries were followed by nectarines, peaches, celery, grapes, cherries, spinach and tomatoes.
