Each serving of fruit provides approximately 45-60mg of vitamin C. Fruit produces complete vitamin C in 10 days after the fruit is ripe. Therefore, fruit which is not ripe contains only very little vitamin C. The vitamin C in fruit will reduce to half once it is plucked and destroy when exposed to heat.
