Featured by Apple as a "Best New App", Veggie Base is the easiest and fastest way to help you pick the best fruits & veggies.
Designed with gorgeous icons and a simple interface, Veggie Base shows you what produce is “in-season” — peak of flavor and usually at their lowest price — and what’s not.
With a quick swipe right, you have fast access to the 2018 "Dirty Dozen" list, which are the fruits & veggies with the highest pesticide contamination. Did you know the average potato had more pesticides by weight than any other produce? Yeah, time to buy organic.
And by swiping left, you have access to the "Clean Fifteen": the food with the lowest pesticide residue and are the safest conventionally grown crops to consume. Save yourself some money by not having to buy organic!
With over 90 fruits & veggies, Veggie Base even gives you detailed information on nutrition as well as tips on how to pick and store your produce.
How about finding local produce? Yup, Veggie Base now offers a way to find local farmers' markets, including information on what products they offer and hours of operation.
Here are the key features of Veggie Base:
- Browse and search what's in season (and what's not)
- Swipe to see what's on The Dirty Dozen or Clean Fifteen lists
- View details on how to pick and store each fruit & veggie
- Add fruits & veggies to your favorites for fast future reference or to use as a shopping list
- Official USDA nutrition integration
- Sort by any vitamin, mineral, and proximate
- ALL NEW: Search for nearby Farmers' Markets and see their hours & products offered!

Ratings and Reviews
Easy, simple, convenient
Makes grocery shopping easy all year round. It is because of apps like this that I'm now living a much, much healthier style. Thank you VB!
Great app with one caveat
I love this app and use it often. The one thing I’d like to see change, however, is the fact that the dirty dozen list doesn’t seem to update to the current year. The official list is revised yearly. It is still showing 2016.
Simple, informative, intuitive UI, and keeps getting better. A must-have for anyone!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
