Most people go about their grocery shopping without ever thinking where their produce comes from, but this infographic called ‘The Dirty Dozen: 12 Foods You Should Buy Organic’ will show foodies the real deal.

One can’t really spot the use of wax and a bunch of other pesticides, but for the next apple you decide to eat, try taking a knife and scraping the surface for what peels off will be surprising. From blueberries to kale and peppers to peaches, it all comes with 50 to 60 different pesticides, according to these statistics by Full Circle.

The Dirty Dozen infographic claims that celery is the highest pesticide-infused product. Next up is peaches followed by kale. Take a look through these numbers and see if it’ll make your next grocery trip end up at an organic store.
