Organic and pesticides

nomadchowwoman | Aug 17, 2009 07:06 AM

I know the term "organic," when listed on packaging, can be misleading. My question: is it ok NOT to wash fruits and veggies that are labeled organic and look very "clean"? I hate, for example, washing raspberries that look good, as they are so fragile, but is it safe if they're labeled "organic"?
