Buying Organic Fruits and Vegetables

The PLU on fruits and veggies has much more of a role than just to aggravate you upon peeling them off. Did you know that the PLU# indicates how your food was grown?

A 5 digit PLU# will either begin with a 9 or an 8. If it begins with a 9, that means that food was grown organically. An 8 indicates that the food was GENETICALLY MODIFIED.

A 4 digit PLU# indicates that the food was conventionally grown (i.e.: not genetically modified).

Here’s a quick and easy way to remember this while you’re in the produce section…

9 is Fine.

8 = Hate.

And for our 4 digit PLU#… ask 4 more information.
