I couldn't keep my eyes off the beautiful strawberries. Not only do they look good but they are organic and organic strawberries are hard to find. Strawberries are on the "dirty dozen" list and anything on the "dirty dozen" list means that you should buy this organic. Basically soft fleshed fruits make this list since pesticides tend to be at a higher level. For a list of what you should strive to buy organic check this link out. Strawberries come in at number 3. Do you know what food is the worst offender and ranked number 1? There is also a "clean fifteen" list and so you can save your money and not purchase organic with these if you don't want to but splurge and buy organic with the others. The exception would be corn. I would always buy it organic since the majority of corn in the U.S. is now Genetically Modified.
