Should Apricots Be Organic?


Organic refers to how a food is grown or where it originates from, not whether or not it’s been treated with pesticides. Organic foods are typically less sugary and contain more nutrients including lots of antioxidants which help the body fight the effects of aging. For example, organic apricot growers often use ground cover plants that stay low to the ground for weed control rather than herbicides that could potentially contaminate drinking water sources downstream from a particular crop field, and these cover crops provide valuable nitrogen fertilization without chemical fertilizers.
