A study by Naturipe Farms examining US consumers' organic purchase behaviours has found that fresh fruit has topped the list of the most frequently purchased organic produce.

Working with the Hartman Group, Naturipes 'Many Faces of Organic 2008' study looked at specific areas surrounding the consumption of berries, and has reported that 45 per cent of US household shoppers purchased organic fresh fruit in the three months prior to the study.
