Reading the Stickers on Your Fresh Fruit

Want to steer clear of genetically-modified fruit? Not sure if your fruit is organically grown? Here’s how you can tell.

Sticker labels on the fruits actually tell you how the fruits have been grown — whether they were organically grown, conventionally grown with pesticides and herbicides; oh, and let’s not forget about the genetically-engineered fruits.

Conventionally-grown fruit labels have four digits and usually start with a 4.

Organically-grown fruit stickers are five digits and start with a 9.

Genetically-modified fruit stickers start with an 8. This is good to know, because stores aren’t obligated to tell you if a fruit has been genetically modified.

So next time you go shopping, remember these critical numbers and know how to avoid purchasing inorganic and GMO fruits. Shop safe.
