I’ll take organic over locally grown

To me, organic — pesticide free and [not genetically modified] — is more important than local. I would love to be able to buy everything local and certified organic. I know that we cannot grow such things as apples, but we are limited by growers and heavy pesticide use in most of the state.

I’ve been looking for certified organic mangoes from Florida in the stores — haven’t found them yet.
