Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
      Fresh fruits and vegetables that are destined to be shipped to fresh-produce sections around the country are typically picked before they reach their peak ripeness. While this gives them time to get to the consumers kitchen before ripening fully, it also gives them less time to develop a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals. Additionally, as soon as produce is picked, it naturally starts to decay. Each vitamin and mineral possesses their own sensitivities to different storage and processing environments, however as a general rule, fresh fruits and vegetables will lose nutrients up until they are eaten. Accordingly, fresh, local produce, eaten soon after harvest, and properly stored at cool temperatures between harvest and consumption are ideal for maximum nutrient content.

        When storing fresh fruit for many days, the vitamin C content tends to diminish (the vitamin is easily destroyed by exposure to air). Canned fruit, however, will still retain much of its vitamin C—even when stored for several months—a clear advantage over fresh. Many fresh fruits are also shipped for miles or sit in storage for days before being enjoyed. This also leads to degradation of their nutritional content.
