Grapes (Imported)

Why they're risky: Grapes are tender and thin-skinned, which makes them vulnerable. To ward off the grape berry moth and other pests, farmers often turn to pesticides.

How to lower your exposure: Avoid imported grapes, unless they are grown organically. Domestically grown grapes were found by the EWG to have less evidence of pesticides, ranking in the middle of the 49 foods tested. But organic grapes are still safer.
