Safe Fruits & Vegetables


Conventionally grown broccoli doesn’t retain as much pesticides because the crop faces fewer threats, which means less pesticides are used.

When choosing broccoli, look for tightly bunched flower buds that haven't yet opened. The broccoli should be a deep green in color and the stalks firm and not rubbery.

Wash in a cool water bath before use. Store in the refrigerator crisper.
