I’m putting together a report on apples, cherries, plums, pomegranates, raspberries, and watermelons. I am looking for information on their chemical content, their nutritional value and their uses in preventative medicine and healing. Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
The nutritional value of fruit varies but usually contains significant sources of fiber (including the peel), vitamin C, folacin, vitamin b-6 and E. Vitamin C values ranged from 9% (apples) to 42% (raspberries).
The representative associations of the various fruits i.e. Washington State Apple Association may have information about chemical content. I don’t. Other fruits are grown in Oregon and California. You can call each state’s chamber of commerce to get the phone numbers.
