Which Fruits Have the Most Sugar?

One mango has a whopping 45 grams of sugar.
A cup of these has about 23 grams sugar.
They're sweet, and they have the sugar to show for it:  A cup of them has 18 grams.
One medium pear has 17 grams of sugar.
A medium wedge of this summer treat has 17 grams of sugar.
Two medium-size ones have 16 grams.
One medium banana has 14 grams sugar.
Not all fruits are loaded with the sweet stuff. A whole avocado -- yep, it's a fruit -- has only half a gram of sugar.
Each one has 5 grams of sugar and about 3 grams of fiber, too -- more than you'd get from a serving of brown rice or a slice of whole-grain bread.
These pack a serious punch of fiber with 8 grams per cup -- and only 5 grams of sugar.
It's kind of amazing that the flavor and satisfaction packed in a single medium wedge can come from only 5 grams of sugar -- and only 23 calories.
 Half of a small one has 6 grams of sugar.
A cup of whole strawberries has only 7 grams.
