Fruit or Vegetable?

Sugar Content Table

Fruits and vegetables have wildly varying amount of sugar in them. This is one of the key determiners of whether something is a fruit or not. In addition, avoiding sugar is quite a good goal for health purposes. For these reasons and others, I've prepared the following table. Data comes from the USDA FoodData Central.
