All fruits and vegetables contain some B12, but it's often in small quantities. Organic fruits and vegetables contain significantly more, however.
Bacteria eat decaying organic matter and excrete complex nutrients into the soil, including B12. This is then absorbed by plants, with some staying in the roots and some making their way into the leaves for us to take in.
But scientists usually find little B12 in vegetables because they test produce grown in soil sterilized with chemical pesticides and fertilizers. We are experiencing better living through chemistry.
