This research article says they observed no benefit with a high evaporation rate during fruit development, although it could theoretically pull more xylem nutrients into the fruit. High humidity was better in this study. It’s unclear why this would be, or if there could be instances where low humidity would pull more calcium in, for example, and thus benefit fruit development. Just sharing ideas... too many rattling around in my empty head.
