Say like nectarines peaches or watermelons for example - some r very sweet and some totally rnt
does it make a (big) difference when it comes to calories?

    I don't claim any particular knowledge on the question but here is a counter-intuitive comparison. According to NCCDB, a raw red tomato has 5.1 kcal per ounce and a raw green tomato has 6.5 kcal per ounce.

    In my professional opinion, no. The calorie difference is pretty small and unlikely to have much impact on factors that regulate food intake or your overall calorie consumption.
