Are you as annoyed as I am at those stickers you have to peel off of fruit and some vegetables you purchase at the grocery store? One more reason to shop at farmer’s markets or grow your own. But, here in NEPA, the climate demands bringing in anything not in season. (Maybe I should be re-thinking that concept). But, those stickers do contain one bit of information that is quite useful. Each sticker contains a number – either 4 or 5 digits. Four digits indicate that the fruit was conventionally grown. If there are 5 digits and the first is a 9, the fruit has been grown organically; if the first is an 8, that fruit is genetically modified. Good to know, aina’?
Update: It should be noted that there is no requirement to indicate that something is genetically modified, so don’t expect to find anything that begins with an 8.
