Carbohydrates in Fruit and Vegetables

Health Conscious? On the Atkin's Diet? Or, are you a diabetic? Whatever the reason for the interest, gardeners are asking about the carbohydrate content of their favorite fruits and vegetables.While in general, vegetables are low in carbohydrates, you may find a few surprises in the list below.

Important Note: The carbohydrate values below are for plain vegetables without anything added to them. For example, adding brown sugar to make candied carrots results in a much higher carbohydrate count than displayed in the list below.
