In brief: Depends
The answer depends on what you measure.
If you are concerned that modern farming is bad for soil and the pesticides and chemicals used may have effects not yet known or acknowledged, then yes, better for the planet. If you compare nutrition value, conventional thinking says no, growing evidence says yes.

In brief: Depends.
The fruit has the same benefits of vitamins and fiber etc.
but some people feel that organic fruits and vegetables have less toxic pesticides on them so you consume less. Organic farmers use pesticides that are felt to be safer. But is unclear how much pesticide humans actually consume from the food and whether those small amounts have any actual effect on you.
