PLU Chart for Produce

American readers should print this chart, and always take it with them when they go grocery shopping.  When Americans buy fruits and vegetables individually, there is usually a small sticker on them.  This sticker will include a 'PLU' number.  The first digit in that number is significant.

The Meaning Of The PLU First Digit On Fresh Produce
