I can tell you have not had a lot of fresh produce in your life, heh.:)
Not to worry, you can get fresh produce most any grocery store. Any carrot will do. So long as it is not cooked or canned or anything like that. Dried fruits are questionable because they are usually heated to high and often have sulfur added to them or sweeters that are processed.
Some people will eat only organic produce though. Just do whatever you can afford. I mix and match. Some things are not as critical as others to have organic if you can not afford them or get them. Some crops could actually be considered organic but the requirements for things like almonds I believe also require some sort of mangement of the growth in the middle of the rows and they can not just be black soil and therefore can not be certified. Avocados are another one that are fairly low maintenance in that respect. You will get to know these things better as you go along. Other things like grapes are heavily sprayed,etc and more important to try to get organic if you can and definitely wash them.
Hope this helps a little bit. Just start by going into your grocery store and really looking around. Bananas, apples, cucumbers, all that ....that is what is meant by raw.
Good luck and have fun!
