2017 LIST OF ALL 48 FRUITS AND VEGETABLES WITH PESTICIDE RESIDUE DATA

EWG analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for the following popular fresh produce items. All 48 foods are listed below from worst to best – lower numbers indicate more pesticides.
Note: EWG analyzed pesticide tests of 48 popular produce items. Domestic and imported versions of two items – blueberries, green beans and snap peas – showed sharply different results, so we have ranked those domestic and imported items separately. As a result, the Shopper’s Guide displays 51 entries.
