The Environmental Working Group's "Shopper's Guide to Pesticides"
(from which I presume this is drawn) has since been revised, with some
produce (like bananas) moving up or down the scale; they also make a
distinction now between domestic grapes (cleaner) and imported ones.

The full list is at:  http://www.foodnews.org/fulllist.php

And there are both PDF and iPhone-app versions of the guide to use
while shopping:  http://foodnews.org/index.php

The methodology is at http://www.foodnews.org/methodology.php, and
is worth a look.
