Not advised: Diabetics need to review the sugar content of different fruit. Be careful with fruit with fewer than 10 grams of sugar content per hectogram eg. watermelon, melon , lemon, grape, (ADA has lists). Limit fruit with 11-20 grams of sugar like banana, pomegranate, orange, apple pear. Avoid fruit with 20 grams of sugar liked jujube, raisons. The American Diabetes Association is a good start.
