A Great Fruit Find

Our Savvy Organic Shopper is a huge fan of citrus fruit, so when she was recently at Wegmans in Northborough, MA, bags of grapefruits caught her eye.  Initially, she saw only non-organic grapefruits, which were priced at $3.49 per bag. She then came across bags of organic grapefruits priced at $4.99. Doing some quick mental math, she figured that put the price difference at around 25 cents more per grapefruit for the organic bag. For her, that was a small price to pay for the assurance that the fruit was grown without toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. So, she picked up the bag of organic grapefruits, checked out, and headed home, eager to enjoy one of her favorite foods.
