Smaller Fruit Is More Nutritious

As fruits and vegetables grow larger, their vitamin and mineral content declines – along with taste and aroma. Organic fruits and vegetables tend to be smaller in general, so the average organic product may have more nutrients than a comparable one that is traditionally grown.

Charles Benbrook, PhD, chief scientist, The Organic Center, which gathers science on the health benefits of organic foods, Enterprise Oregon.

I’ve noticed this most often with Apples and Strawberries. I can recall a few times that I fell prey to the “bigger must be better” line of thinking, only to discover that the larger fruit had little flavor. If you have the time, find your nearest Farmer’s Market and buy locally grown produce. Most farmers will be happy to let you sample their product before you buy, and most likely you’ll find the shopping experience more relaxing than your local grocery store.
