Top 10 Fruits With the Most Nutrition for Your Money

submitted on March 7, 2011 by siggy38 in "Products / Gadgets"

I Love fruit! But what if you want to watch your budget. Everyone knows that some fruits can cost more than we want to spend. This article explains that the fruits listed below are not only good for your wallet, but also has great nutritional value.
1. Watermelon
2. Plums
3. Oranges
4. Apples
5. Strawberries
6. Cantaloupe
7. Grapefruit
8. Bananas
9. Kiwi
10. Peaches
So if you want to spend only so much money on fruit, go with watermelon, plums, oranges and apples to get the most nutrition for relatively little dough.

Everyone knows berries are great sources of vitamins, but they rank low on this chart because they're pricey. This chart emphasizes both low cost and nutrition.

Here's how Langston and Hess came up with these rankings: They tracked down the price-per-cup of various fruits, as revealed in a new report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They also got the nutritional scores for various fruits, as determined by the ANDI (Aggregate Nutrient Density Index) rating method used by the Whole Foods chain and others. They then divided each fruit's ANDI score by its price per cup.

    I just bought a lime tree and a kumquat tree (like little oranges). I'm planning to start growing my own fruit. Big Grin

    We use the green boxes for storing fruit which keeps the fruit fresher longer.
