Organic / Naturally Grown Vegetables - How Do You Verify?

I bought this bundle of organic sawi from my regular organic veggie seller this morning. I just love to see the tiny worm holes on the leaves of vegetables. This way, I am almost assured that the veggies were grown without the use of pesticides and bugs repellents.

There is this self-claimed organic veggie stall at the night market that claim that all their vegetables and fruits are naturally grown without the use of pesticides in Cameron Highlands. However, their veggies are free from worm holes, huge and can last pretty long in the fridge too!  I feel really dubious about their claim, yet many people flock to buy their veggies and paying two to three-fold!  Most of all, there is no certification whatsoever to confirm their claim that their produce are organic or grown naturally.



 

Don't you just love to see holes on your vegetables like me? ;)

I only buy organic produce if I see a sticker of certification on the packaging.  Do you buy so-called organic produce that have no sticker of certification on the packaging?

Hi,

I have the same problem with you. It is hard to verify whether the produce is a genuine organic one or not. I use to only buy from Zhenxin Organic farm but they do not have many choices and recently im in love with Vegeboy. They do door to door delivery in Klang area.
I was hoping the local authorities would tighten the rules on organic claim produce but it didn't happen. Will be happy to know if there are simple ways that we could use to identify the organic produce, such as holes, worms and etc....

Hi Su Bee, you can also try hydrophonic vegetables. Many supermarkets have them.
