Pesticide residue is the tiny amount of pesticides that stays on fruit and vegetables after they are harvested, washed and delivered to the point of sale. It is commonly assumed that pesticide residue is a Very Bad Thing, which might Kill You, Or Worse. Lack of pesticide residue is a major marketing point of organic food, especially produce.
