Organic Fruit More Flavorful

This morning, I had an appointment in Delaware. While driving North on I-95, I reached for the beautiful pear that I had rinsed and wrapped in a towel on the way out of the door. I took a bite. The flavor was so intensely wonderful! It was my first of the season. For a few seconds, I forgot that I was driving! It was organic and as pure as a piece of fruit can get these days. It was so flavorful and energizing. The energy I felt was the equivalent of a cup of coffee without the let down.

Two things (I feel) made it so tasteful: 1) It was organic (grown and harvested without chemicals) and 2) It was fresh, ripened to perfection and in season.

Bottomline: Organic produce is going to be more flavorful (and contain more nutrients). Has that been your experience?
