30 Bananas a Day!

I feel sort of silly asking this question, but I must.  Could someone please list for me what are considered sweet fruits?  To me, they're all sweet.  But then I read in Dr. D's book to eat sweet fruit for breakfast, sweet fruit for lunch.  He definitely specifies sweet fruit.  And while you're at it, could you please list what are NOT sweet fruits?   Are we talking tomatoes? 


Thanks for any help.  :)

Sweet Red Pepper is both sweet and a fruit, yet it's not considered a 'sweet fruit'?
It's not sweet like a banana or mango or apple. The predominant flavor isn't sweet, to me. And it doesn't have as many calories as "sweet" fruits.
Aaaah. . .I see. Thank you so much, Nik!

I love the book! I've read it all the way through once, and some parts I've read countless times. Just love it! :)

Thanks again, hon!!
sweet fruit: bananas, mangoes, persimmons, figs, dates, all dried fruit
sub-acid fruit: apples, pears, plums, nectarines, grapes, peaches
acid fruit: citruces, berries, pineapples, kiwi, pomegranates, tomatoes, peppers
melons: honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon etc
greens: leafy greens etc
starches: potatoes, squash, corn, pumpkin, root veg, carrots
protein: nuts, seeds, beans, grains, legumes

i hope this is correct
Wouldn't nuts and seeds be more fats than proteins?
That's what Dr. D said in the lecture I heard.
Thanks to you all for the discussion. . .it was very helpful. LOVE the food pyramid!!! :D
