Fructose vs Glucose in Fruit

In a major news magazine, the author of a book on obesity states that fructose is found in fruit in much lower concentrations than glucose. 

False, at least according to USDA data. The sugars in fruit consist of sucrose, fructose and glucose, with fructose content often being higher than glucose; it is occasionally a little lower than glucose. Examples of fruits with more fructose than glucose are apples, pineapples, pears and strawberries (in fact, apples and pears have twice as much fructose as glucose).
