Those annoying fruit stickers can, apparently, be quite informative:

  • A 4-number code denotes conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables (pesticides used);
  • A 5-number code beginning with 8 means, organic or not, the fruit or vegetable was genetically modified (GE or GMO);
  • And a 5-number code beginning with 9 means the fruit was organically grown without genetic modification.

Wow I never knew this
