The stickers on fruit actually tell you quite a bit about the produce you’re about to purchase: 4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown, 5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified (GMO) 5 numbers starting with 9 means they were organically grown (no pesticides or nasty GMOs) Interesting!!
