Pesticide Residue in Fruits (Israel)

Last year, I posted information about pesticide residue in produce in Israel.

I've been waiting for the updated list, but so far, all I can find is an updated fruit list.
At this point, some of these fruits are out of season, but not all.

So here is the list of the most contaminated fruits this year:

Grapes
Pears
Peaches
Apricots
Nectarines
Plums
Apples
Melons
Mangos
Pomegranates
Persimmons
Lychee
Cherries
Figs
Dates

The cleanest fruits this year are: 

Watermelons
Bananas
Organic Lychee
Sabras

I know this list seems like it's a mile long... 
I'm hoping that the more these pesticide residue rankings get publicized, the closer we'll get to major changes...

If you found this information useful, please share it with your friends! And don't forget to like my Facebook page!
