List of Fruits and their Calories

We all know that we should eat more fruit, but how can we make wise choices with regards to calories?  So a regular banana with 95 Kcal is a better than a Mars Bar with 229 Kcal.  But an apple is a better choice over the banana, having just 82 Kcal.  I’ve put together a table of many fruits to help out those calorie counting.  Please be aware that I may have made mistakes so use your own judgement.  I have only included fruits which are commonly used as sweet items of food.  I have include more savoury fruits, such as tomatoes and peppers in my vegetables list(List of Vegetables and their Calories).

All values are for fresh/raw versions of the fruits unless otherwise shown.  I haven’t included tinned or frozen fruits as values are readily available on packaging.
