"Ingredient selection and use" is intended to cover things like this; the differences between two versions of an ingredient are part of how you select it.

It's hard to be that concise without leaving it a little ambiguous, but the idea is that we take questions about ingredients in a culinary context, for example:

  • how to select an ingredient (ripe fruit, fresh vegetables)
  • about attributes of an ingredient (descriptions or differences)
  • how to prepare an ingredient (peeling, basic cooking techniques)

But you can't ask about things outside culinary topics, for example:

  • how to grow an ingredient, though there is Gardening for that
  • how to eat an ingredient
  • health/nutrition of an ingredient

(these lists are not meant to be exhaustive either)
