  yIbaQ! 
  Be just picked! (!) KGT

KGT 85:  Other than that which is served alive, the best meat is {ghoQ} ("fresh, just killed"). A vegetable or fruit that is {baQ} ("fresh, just picked, just fallen off the plant"), on the other hand, is not as favored as one that is {DeH} ("ripe", though "overripe" might be closer to the mark) or even {QaD} ("dry, dried out").

KGT 190:  the verb {baQ} ... applies only to fruit or vegetables

Similar words:

tlhol 		be raw, be unprocessed (v)
nIt 			be plain, be pure, be uncorrupted, be unsullied (v)
watlh 		be pure (v)
