Great link from the Paleo Diet site: Fruits and Sugars Table

Here's some more info...
Fruit is an area where some of the low-carb diets part company, as some depend more upon glycemic index or glycemic load (Paleo, Zone), while others just look at total carbs (Atkins, Protein Power). Also, some diets (Atkins, South Beach) don't allow fruit at all in the first phase. In general, your best bet fruits are the ones near the top of this list, but do check carb counts as well. These are roughly arranged by sugar content -
Ok, so some more googling says Paleo can eat fruit, but since they try to limit sugars in the body, they either specify low sugar fruits and/or fruit in moderation.

So eat more blackberries, blueberries and rhubarb instead of mango, banana or apple..
