How important to you is it to wash your fruits and vegetables before eating?

We were considering this while happily munching an apple in the U-Pick orchard last week. We take care to wash sandy, gritty vegetables like arugula and leeks, but sometimes we forget to wash our fruit - especially organically grown varieties.

What about you? Are you scrupulous in washing your produce? Do you use plain water, or the fruit sprays? Or does it not matter much to you?
