RANKED: The 17 most nutritious berries for you


From blueberries to blackberries, by the time summer rolls around, it's hard to resist adding sweet, sometimes tart berries to virtually everything.

But, is there a berry that is healthier than the rest? We decided to investigate.

The botanical term "berry" is pretty broad. Technically, a berry is any fleshy fruit that has a singular ovary, so everything from a watermelon to an eggplant qualifies.


So for this ranking, we've stuck to edible berries that fit the botanical description, without getting too broad, while also throwing in some berries that are technically misnomers.

To rank them, we stacked up their nutritional content. Areas like total carbohydrates and calories worked against their ranking, while vitamins A, B6, C, potassium, iron, and fiber counted toward a better ranking. All the berries were counted in one cup increments in their raw form.
