Is Bigger Better?

In Korea, the thinking seems to be 'the bigger the piece of fruit or vegetable, the better'. In western countries where I've lived, the opposite tended to be the case -- people seem to value the little tender baby ones the most. Is this merely fashion, or is there any nutritional basis to the preference, either way?

People blithely pay up to a 100% premium for great bloody mutant pears or apples, for example. It drives me nuts, especially when I try to convince my wife that the little guys are sweeter and better for you. But I'm not sure if that's actually true. Thus my question.
