Is the nutritional value of fresh fruit affected by its age? For example, is a hard pear any more/less nutritious than a fully ripe pear?thanks!Alexis Gabay

The nutritional value of fresh fruit will be affected by its age.  Harvesting too soon or over-ripening will affect the nutrient content.  Many other factors also affect nutrient content of fruit, so it is difficult to know the extent of differences between a hard pear and a ripe pear. Meeting your recommendations for daily intake of fruits and vegetables by eating a wide variety is the best way to assure that you are getting the optimal benefits of consuming them.  You can see what the recommendations are for you by clicking here.
