In the book, I have listed many common fruits (also seeds, nuts, legumes, herbs, vegetables etc.) that are high in fiber. My question is simple: which fruit has the best sugar-to-fiber ratio?
Fruit is defined as something where we eat the flesh surrounding the seeds (even if we also eat the seeds). Tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers qualify but not walnuts or sunflower seeds (we eat the seeds and not the flesh). Some (like quinoa) we could debate, but lets not get too picky about our definition and you're welcome to argue your case.

Below a few examples for you to beat (please list your source and grams per 100g)
Avocado: They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 0.1 (sugar: 0.66g and fiber: 6.7g per 100g), source: reliable (USDA)
Fresh green almonds (you eat the flesh, nut and even the still soft shell): They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 0.3 (sugar: 3.5g and fiber: 10.6g per 100 g), source: not reliable (myfitnesspal)
Okra (yes it is a fruit): They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 0.5 (sugar: 1.48g and fiber: 3.2g per 100g), source: reliable (USDA)
Passionfruit: They have a sugar-to-fiber ratio of 1.1 (sugar: 11.2g and fiber: 10.4g per 100g), source: reliable (USDA)
Remember that a sugar-to-fiber ration that is smaller than 4 is healthy, so the above examples can be considered super-fruits.
