An apple has as much sugar as a can of regular soda. Sugar really is itself. What is a popular eaten fruit with the lowest amount of sugar?

In brief: Strawberries

Coca cola has 39 grams sugar/can; apples have 13.
3 g sugar. Big difference! also, the amount of fiber in the fruit modulates how quickly its sugar would be absorbed and result in Insulin peaks. There's no fiber in coca cola, so you get a jolt of sugar! lower-sugar fruits include strawberries, blackberries & blueberries: http://tinyurl.Com/mya2jsm by the way -- a tomato is a "fruit" too. :-).

In brief: Not true

Calorie counts for foods are often inaccurate because they count non-absorbable carbohydrates including Cellulose and fiber -- there's some really poor science here.
You don't see people getting fat eating apples. The 19 gm listed for a big apple (76 calories) is still way below the 39 gm / 156 calories from a can of sugary soda, and you know that two apples won't fill you up like pop.

In brief: Fruit is Sugar

There are no such distinctions.
All fruit is 100% sugar. We have grown up with myths that fruit is healthy but there are few nutritional benefits from fruit. And, if you have a weight or sugar problem than fruit should be avoided.
