Fruit is delicious, it's good for you, and it contains naturally occurring sugars. And while there's technically no chemical difference between natural and added sugars, there's a huge difference between eating a piece of fruit and a candy bar. According to Brian St. Pierre, director of performance nutrition at Precision Nutrition, when you eat fruit, you're also getting lots of other important nutrients, like fiber, vitamins, phytochemicals, and water (since some fruit is actually mostly water) — all of which you wouldn't get with processed sweets like cookies or candies.

That said, it's still interesting to see which fruits contain the least and the most sugar. And if you're trying to cut down on all types of sugar, here's more info on how to do that.
