I'd like to have some idea of which types of fruit are best and which worst.
What I have access to is more or less the following: apple banana citrus fruits kiwi pear mango grapes peach plum nectarine apricot cherry strawberry pomegranite passion fruit melons watermelon
Great answer here:
It includes this chart:
Copy and paste it into Excel or Google Docs and you'll be able to sort by highest to lowest
You want to eat the most of the least fructose fruit and an occasional piece of the fruits higher in fructose.
I would look to a glycemic load chart, and consume as an occasional treat those at the lowest end. Glycemic load is based on a serving size, and glycemic index is based on a set quantity, so glycemic load charts give you a much more accurate idea of a food's impact on your blood sugar. Here is a chart that shows both: http://www.alsearsmd.com/glycemic-index/
