What makes produce damaging? The chemicals, preservatives, and pesticides added to them. Apples have topped the Environmental Working Group’s dirtiest produce list for five years in a row.

1. Apples
2. Peaches
3. Nectarines
4. Strawberries
5. Grapes
6. Celery
7. Spinach
8. Sweet bell peppers
9. Cucumbers
10. Cherry tomatoes
11. Snap peas
12. Potatoes
