how much water in fruits an vegetable

The water content of fruits and vegetables will vary. In general, they have a relatively high water content, but some of the watery, crisp types of vegetables and juicy fruits such as lettuce, cucumber, and apples or oranges have more than the starchier ones such as potatoes or bananas. The water content of fruits and vegetables along with the fiber they contain help to provide satiety, or the feeling of fullness after eating. You can see the water content of individual fruits and vegetables at http://grande.nal.usda.gov/NDL/index.html
