If you harvest produce early so that it can ensure long distance shipping, it is unlikely to have the full array of nutrients that it might have had. In addition, this type of shipping also requires irradiation and preservatives which have not been thoroughly studied as to their impacts on humans. When it comes down to it, local and in-season is really the safer option for produce.
In addition, the flavor profile of in-season fruit or vegetable item is much richer, given the fact that the produce has had the opportunity to achieve full ripeness. In many cases, produce that is shipped from overseas must be picked before it has achieved full maturity in order to be able to ensure long distance shipping.
