Researchers at William Patterson University ranked the most nutrient-packed fruits and vegetables in the produce department by the amounts of 17 critical nutrients they contain.

Watercress is a member of the cabbage family. It’s an excellent source of vitamins b6, c, manganese, and carotenes.  

Chinese cabbage ranked second, followed by chard, beat greens, and spinach.

Greens in the cabbage family also provide a good source of fiber, iron, copper, and calcium.

The highest ranking fruits on the list were red peppers, pumpkin, tomato, and lemon.

GIF phytochemicals were included, fruits and berries would have scored much higher. Phytochemicals are naturally occurring substances in fruits that offer disease preventive properties, but these rankings were based on nutrients only.
