Is A Fruit's Nutritional Value Proportional to Its Ripeness?

Phil Ogelos | Mar 13, 201507:58 AM

I went searching for an answer on the Ch-eb and found only this fascinating, but tangential, thread:

My question: does a green banana, for example, provide fewer nutrients than a ripe one? An unripe pear?

[I thought I might include vegetables in the discussion, but -at least for harvested stock- I can't believe they're relevant. Steaming makes a difference, I know, as does shredding; I just need to hear about the raw bits.]
