Research has shown that vitamin C levels increase in some fruits as they ripen. These include mango, papaya and honeydew. Changes in vitamin C have not been studied in all fruits, but flavor changes significantly as fruits ripen, and vitamin C is a major contributor of flavor in many fruits so it may be that vitamin C commonly increases with ripeness.
