Organic or No (fruits and veges)
How to know if the fruits and veges we buy are pesticide free or organic
Many a times my clients ask me how to know if the foods we buy are pesticide free or organic.
Although this may be a difficult task in itself however here are a few things to look
Appearance If it is oddly shaped uneven like no two items are identical eg no two leaves of the same mango tree will ever look 100% alike. Similarly, each apple, mango or even grain will always look different from another. Their colour, shape, structure will never be uniform. There will, for instance, be different shades of yellow in your moong dal instead of the uniformly bleached yellow of the regular packaged dal.
Fruits, vegetables and grains won't be huge in size. There are, of course, special cases in which people do grow large-sized fruits and vegetables organically as well, but they are not the norm and are difficult to find.
