Demystify that Mango!

The next time you polish up an apple or peel a banana, think twice about the tiny sticker likely affixed to the exterior. Those colorful wee stickers slapped on to every piece of fruit offer PLU codes that can tell you a lot more than the fruit itself could just from appearances.

  • A four-digit number means it’s conventionally grown.
  • A five-digit number beginning with 9 means it’s organic.
  • A five-digit number beginning with 8 means it’s genetically modified.

  • Now you can be sure about what you’re buying!
