When is it, however, not worth the price to buy organic? Well when the produce belongs to the group known as the “Clean 15”. These fruits and vegetables most have one trait in common, a thick skin. Fruits like melon, citrus, and kiwi have skins that we normally cannot eat. For the full list of safe non-organic produce please go here.
