what is the nutrition value differents between just picked vs store bought on avg. thanks

The nutritional value of produce depends on many different factors, including weather, amount of sunlight, varietals, and even when it is picked. However, differences in nutrition between just picked and store bought are likely small since produce purchased at the store is usually picked when it is close to ripe. The nutrition information that is posted for fresh produce in the supermarket is based on analysis of items that were selected at the supermarket so that it reflects what you are purchasing. The important thing is to eat MORE of them, whether they be just picked, store bought fresh, fresh, frozen, canned or dried!
