Geriborba, that was answered in another post today. Check out the other postings.

You can also go to Calorie King.Com and see the calories and carbs for each fruit, plus sugar content. It really helped me a lot.
I gave up pineapple, cherries, and grapes. I STILL once in a while will have a slice of pineapple, or a few grapes, but I really watch myself there, as I go high when I eat those fruits. Every diabetic is different though and you need to test yourself a few hours afterward. If I eat some protein like cheese or nuts with the fruit, it doesn't spike as high.
