Some argue that the price is too high for organic products, but as demand increases, the price will come down, and make it more competitive in price. Look for the PLU codes on the labels stuck on your fruits and veggies. To determine which fruits and vegetables are organic, check the code on the sticker. A four-digit number means it's conventionally grown. A five-digit number beginning with 9 means it's organic. A five-digit number beginning with 8 means it's genetically modified.
