This was posted on boingboing, and originally found on this guy's blog. Apparently, you can read the numbers on the sticker on fruit to determine whether a fruit was conventionally grown, organically grown, or genetically engineered.

"(T)he sticker labels on fruit: The numbers tell you how the fruit was grown. Conventionally grown fruit has four digits; organically grown fruit has five and starts with a nine; genetically engineered has five numbers and starts with an eight."

Good to know!
