    Produce with thick skins that are not eaten typically have a lower chance of having a high pesticide residue, so fruits and veggies without these skins typically are the ones included on lists of fruits to stay away from or buy organic. According to the Daily Green, tree fruits, berries, leafy greens are those that shoppers should be wary of. Apples, strawberries, and celery were tops on the site’s list of fruits that should be bought organic.
