    Fruits and juices with a high glycemic index -- above 50 on a scale of 0 to 100 -- make the blood sugar rise rapidly. Diabetics should avoid these foods. These include orange juice, bananas, canned apricots with syrup, dark cherries, cantaloupe, cranberries, melons, dates, grape juice, grapes, canned fruit cocktail, kiwis, plantains, mangos, papaya, raisins, pineapple, and watermelon.
