If Europe Won’t Eat Our Apples, Why Should You?


Organic food is still considered to be a “specialty” item in America, but to the rest of the world it is a necessity considering all of the chemicals and growing techniques that are banned overseas.

Every year in the fall millions of people head to the apple orchards to pick, and eat “conventional” apples, but did you know that these same apples were recently banned in Europe by food safety regulators?

No, they’re not GMO (just yet, anyway, but that’s a whole different story), but there is one chemical particular that has led to a great deal of worry in Europe, as well as the recent ban.

I personally only buy organic apples these days, because apples are one of the “dirty dozen” foods that are sprayed with the most pesticides overall.

This fall I know I’ll be staying away from the “conventional” apple orchard, and I’ll instead make my way to my favorite spot in Ann Arbor, Michigan where over 20 varieties of organic apples from all over the world are grown by a friend of mine.


Every time I take a bite I’m reminded of what true organic farming can really do and why we need to break free from chemical monoculture farming, for more reasons than I can possibly count.
