And the prize for the filth­i­est fruit goes to …

The Guardian - G2 - - News -

It has been re­vealed that straw­ber­ries and spinach are the dirt­i­est fruit and veg. This is sur­pris­ing; I al­ways thought thereere was some­thing in­es­timably per­verse about parsnips. Of course, there is some­thing de­li­ciously filthy about a fig, and don’t get me started on kumquats. They’re all pas­sion fruits, if you ask me, lads. It turns out that the US En­vi­ron­men­tal Work­ing Group, which made the an­nounce­ment, is talk­ing about pes­ti­cide residue onn pro­duce, which is a bit of a mood killer. Best to go or­ganic, it says. Or “au nat­u­ral”, as I’ve been asked to stop call­ing it.
