How to spot GMO fruit and vegetables

Did you know that the labels on fruits and vegetables can tell you whether the produce is genetically modified or not? I had no idea, so for those of you who like me, did not know, here is how to find out:

labels with four digit numbers (beginning with 3 or 4): denote conventionally grown produce (with pesticides and fertilizers)

labels with five digits beginning with 8: denote GMO, genetically modified produce

labels with five digits beginnin with 9: denotes organic produce
