Note the #s on the Fruit Label

Conventional Fruit Labels: Four digits starting with 4

Organic Fruit Labels: Five digits and starts with number 9

Genetically Modified Fruits: Start with the digit 8

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

This is good to know because stores aren't obligated to tell you if a fruit has been genetically modified.

So if you come across an apple in the store and its label is 4734, it's a conventional apple grown with herbicides and harmful fertilizers.

If it has a sticker 97354, it's organic and safe to eat.

If it says 87354, then do not buy!!!!! It has been Genetically Modified (GMO).

Keep away from No. 8
