Look care­fully at the tiny prod­uct la­bel on ap­ples and other fruits. A four-digit num­ber in­di­cates the fruit has been grown in a con­ven­tional man­ner; a five-digit num­ber be­gin­ning with ‘9’ in­di­cates or­gan­i­cally grown fruit, while five dig­its be­gin­ning with ‘8’ in­di­cate a ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied fruit. (From the book 1001 Weird Facts for Cana­dian Gar­den­ers.)
