Which fruits/nuts/vegs. have a big difference in taste when organic or conventional?
Some fruits taste the same, while others only midly or very different.
Like organic bananas taste better, but organic mangos tastes the same.
And I bought some raw honey, and omg...... mm mmmm good, thank you Mr.Bees

You said you only eat organic anyway, so why's it matter? Remember your comment, the "Ewwwww you guys are eating pesticides!"? I do.

Yep...I think I remember reading that as well, Codajess. Yesterday, I believe. :D

Eventually when you clean yourself out totally you will taste everything. I remember doing an intensive fasting program a few years ago, raw, fast, raw, fast, raw fast...with fasts up to a few weeks on just water. Coming off I had a salad with my favorite prepared salad dressing. Couldn't eat it because the chemical taste was so acrid in my mouth.

I think most fruit is especially noticeable, esp. the ones without skin. I've usually had a hard time distinguishing taste-wise.

I can actually taste the pesticides on some grapes (like from Chile) and I can taste a difference in bananas.

I think organic strawberries taste very different.

I think it also depends on the organic farmer. I love the organic produce I get at Whole Foods, but my local supermarket has fruit that is organic and tastes just Horrible! No flavor whatsoever! If I did not know any better, this would turn me away from organic products! I think this is also because more farmers may be trying to jump on the organic bandwagon now... and maybe their soil is not nutrient rich just yet??? Also... the organic bananas I get from Vons/Safeway are horrible as well! Too bad it takes me 30 minutes to go to Whole Foods!

I've had awesome conventional mangoes and horrible organic mangoes, so sometimes it isn't always what it seems.

I remember that comment too! Anyway, I think ALL taste different. The longer I'm all organic even conventional produce doesn't LOOK edible or good!

I think ALL foods have a very different taste when organic.
I was at a friends today, and she made me an almond milkshake, I could barely drink it, it was soooooo chemical tasting, she used non-organic almonds.
I use organic, and I had no idea the difference was sooo strong. LOL
Now, I know why I always eat the food that I grow, soooooo much better.

I can tell a difference in taste with:
Sweet potatoes are the thing that struck me the most. I was eating a sweet potato that was organic one time and my brother had one that wasn't organic and after eating the organic one, when I tasted his, it had absolutely no flavor. It tasted like cardboard.

cauliflower, it doesnt have that aftertaste you get with non organic. my hubby noticed that.
tomatoes and carrots these three were noticed by sister in law when she stayed with us, she said they actually had taste, and asked where i bought them.
personally i try and get organic when i can, as i do believe it is better for you.
why not experiment yourself by buying both organic and conventional and see if you notice a difference.

I've tasted some fruits and veggies and really could tell if they were organic or not (just felt good on the inside about eating them). The items that I can definitely taste the difference in (every single time) are strawberries, bananas, apples, and sometmes, carrots.

AVO's AVO's AVO's!!! Id rather not eat one if its convential! Most fruits too.

i can usually tell right away if something isnt organic
ALL conventional fruits and veggies (but specifically fruits) are at least 50% more tasteless to me.
especially bananas and apples. ick.
