Well, next time you see them, make sure they don’t get unnoticed. There is hidden information on these stickers which could be of great use for all of us.

Whenever you see a 4-digit code on the fruit labels, it tells us that the fruit was conventionally grown. This means that the fruit was traditionally grown with the use of pesticides. Don’t panic, the amount and level of pesticides used are very low and they aren’t harmful. Also, properly wash your fruit before consuming it. Doing this would remove residue and germs.Are You Aware Of Hidden Meaning Behind Fruit Labels?-naadle If you see a 5-digit code beginning with 9, the chances are the fruit is produced organically.
