What is the negative effect of waxing fruit?

The wax that is used on fruits (and vegetables) is applied to stop them from drying out.

It is safe to eat. In fact it’s similar to the wax that is found in chocolate bars, so most of us eat it without even knowing!. Some wax will be removed when you wash your produce but it is not necessary to remove every last trace.
