Produce Stickers

When you buy an apple at the grocery store, you know what that little sticker is for. It gives the cashier a code to ring up the sale.


But that sticker also has a secret to share with you – something that doesn’t concern the cashier at all.


According to the website Fruit Sticker (, the code reveals some very useful information:

Conventionally grown produce has a four-digit number on the sticker.

Organic produce gets a five-digit number that begins with a 9.
And produce items that are genetically modified also get five digits, but they begin with an 8.


So the produce aisle, more than anywhere else in life, is where being a 9 makes you MUCH better than being an 8!
