@Ariella,

I feel like that's the troubling part about it. Even when you try to be diligent, there's some component that's contaminated due to the common practices of the industry.

@nimantha.d,

There will be chemicals even what the wrapper's really good. That's due to the chemical makeup of the soil and all other natural components over time. It's all about minimizing exposure at this stage.

@nimantha.d I really think it was primarily a marketing gimmick. Most people are not likely to eat the wrapper, but being able to claim to have the only edible wrapper around gets you attention, as well as brownie points for being green.

@pocharle yes, but they really shouldn't. Many of them can carry residue from the fertilizers and pesticides used, and even organic produce was likely fertilized with manure.

@pochrale: But still the applied chemicals will be there even you wash it. So its not good at all.

@Ariella,

The only argument I could think of is that people eat fruit & veggies without washing them soooo...
