Is it harmful to eat under-ripe fruits?
I crave fruit that is not ripe (mostly berries, bananas, sometimes oranges, etc.). Is eating these harmful or not? I can't seem to find anything online addressing it, so I'm guessing it's not that common. Does anyone else feel like green fruits?

Yes, unripened fruit is bad for you. It is too acidic and will give you a belly ache and diarrhea. It doesn't fill you up either, which may make you overeat. You need to let your fruit ripen, okay?

Is it the bitterness you crave? The only problem with green fruits is that they can cause diarrhea if eaten excessively. Google the individual fruit and see what it says. I know citrus and bananas definately aren't a problem.
