How to buy organic fruits and vegetables: your personal guide.

Have you been wondering how to buy organic fruits and vegetables? How we buy our organic fruits and veggies can impact our health and environmental impact.

So, we’ve created this guide to help boost your nutritional intake while keeping your food waste to a minimum.

Come to the fresh produce aisle prepared

In Queensland, food waste contributes to half of our landfill, and while composting is a great initiative, the best way to combat food waste is to only buy what you need. 

Before coming to buy your organic fruits and veggies at Organika, have a think about what you really need. Take into consideration:

  • What you already have in the fridge and fruit bowl
  • What meals or snacks you’d like to prepare during the week
  • What your household loves to eat 
  • What always seems to find its way in the bin.

Buying more of what you need and love, and less of what you don’t, is a great way to reduce your food waste and to streamline your weekly meals.

Look for an organic certification

Some fresh produce stores have a mixture of organic and non-organic produce. Before buying your organic fruits and vegetables, check their labels or stickers to ensure it’s actually certified organic. 

If it is, you’ll be able to spot an organic certification logo and corresponding certification number – you can learn more about this on our Organic Groceries Page.

We make shopping organic easy at Organika because we only stock certified organic products and fresh produce. 

And, if you ever have a question about our suppliers, you can always ask one of our friendly team members.

Buy seasonal organic fruits and vegetables

When shopping organic, you should always look for seasonal organic fruits and veggies. Seasonal produce is locally grown,  making it fresher and riper. And when fruits and vegetables are harvested at the peak of their maturity, they also contain more nutritional value, too.

On the flip side, fruits and vegetables that aren’t in season are often sourced from faraway countries and have travelled great distances to get to your plate, losing some of their nutritional value in the process. 

Therefore, it’s in your best interests to stick with what’s seasonal and leave the rest off your fork.

Look for signs of freshness

Have a picky eater at home who won’t eat a bruised apple? Visually inspect your organic fruits and vegetables for bumps or bruises before popping them in your cart. This will help eliminate any food waste at home and ensure you’re only tucking into the freshest produce.

Choose fruits and vegetables that are firm, brightly coloured, and have no blemishes or bruises. Fresh produce will taste better and have a longer shelf life.

Store your organic fruits and vegetables the right way

Once you’ve bought all of your delicious organic fruits and veggies, store them correctly to help them last.

Here’s a quick guide on how to store your fresh produce:

  • Leafy Greens: Wrap your clean leafy greens in a tea towel and store them in an air-tight container or resealable bag in the fridge.
  • Root Vegetables: keep your root vegetables in a cool, dark place free from any household critters.
  • Berries: Wrap your berries in a tea towel and store them in an air-tight container or resealable bag in the fridge.
  • Fruits like apples, watermelon, cherries, grapes: pop these in the ‘fresh produce’ drawer in your fridge.
  • Fruits like kiwi fruit, oranges, passion fruit, stone fruit, persimmons: you can keep these in a fruit bowl on your kitchen counter.

Everything you need to know about shopping organic produce | FAQs

Fruits and vegetables are considered organic when the farming practices used to grow and harvest them is free from:

  • Herbicides and pesticides
  • Sewerage contamination
  • Synthetic fertilisers
  • Genetic engineering.

Instead, organic fruits and vegetables are harvested using traditional farming practices such as:

  • Natural fertilisers like manure and compost
  • Nutrient-dense soil and quality water
  • Pest-eating insects like ladybugs to manage potential pests
  • Crop rotation to maintain the health and quality of soil.

Organic fruits and vegetables aren’t harvested using any synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers. Some pesticides made from natural ingredients can be used so long as they’re approved by the organic certification body and deemed as safe to use.

At Organika, we’re so passionate about eating organic because organic fruits and vegetables are better for you.

Organic fruits and vegetables have been found to contain more nutrients, like vitamins and antioxidants, than their non-organic counterparts, and when you buy local, the nutritional value only increases.

Not only is the nutritional profile of organic fresh produce greater, but you’re also not ingesting the nasty chemicals used to harvest non-organic fruits and vegetables.

While organic fruits and vegetables are spray-free, you should still wash them before use. Washing your fresh produce helps remove any soil and pathogens that are sitting on the surface. 

We recommend soaking your organic fruits and veggies in a water-vinegar solution. You can do this by adding one cup of vinegar to one litre of spring water in large bowl and placing your fresh produce in for 15 minutes.

Once any debris floats off your fresh produce, give them a quick rinse and dry thoroughly.
