    Maybe a very ripe banana if I should choose one fruit only...

    Do you know how many different types of berries there are? The best is the wild brambles (blackberries) that we gather in the hedgerows in the autumn, though the wild raspberries by the roadsides in late summer are pretty good too!

    I'm having a déjà vu moment here. I do pick wild blackberries in summer. If I can find wild black raspberries, they are the best!

    I think if you just go for variety w.r.t. color you'll get everything you need.

    Your preferences are heavy on the yellow. Those are my favorites too but maybe switch it up with some kiwi, watermelon, plum, grapes, apples, (berries...), etc. Or not!

    I predominantly eat bananas cos they're so cheap and filling, but not sure where they rank on the nutrition scale. Pineapple, mango, oranges are also a regular feature in my life.
    The best fruits to eat are whatever fruits you like. They're almost universally great. They're pretty much the only thing in nature that literally wants you to eat it. Take it from a true paleo perspective - have you ever had meat and vegetables without seasonings? Not even salt and pepper? They are very bland. The only true pleasure food in nature is fruit. Enjoy.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Best fruit:

    Backyard organic > Farmer market in season > Organic supermarket in season > Organic anything.......

    You get were I'm going with this right?

    Shortest distance traveled with least time between picking and eating.

    Oh.... and berries are best!

    Wouldn't the best fruit be to eat a variety so that you get the variety of nutrients each has to offer.

    I kind of follow this too... Is an idea I got from Paul Jaminet and "the perfect health diet". In addition to the variety of nutrients, you also are not exposed to the same toxins all the time should there be any. Seems to make sense to me.

    CHERRIES! I forgot about those tasty critters. Kiwis are also good.

    Those of you who suggested variety are right... I'm a bit stuck in my ways.

    Didn't realise that! Wonder what nutrient is dominant in yellow fruits?

    Those of you who said berries: you're on my enemy list...
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
