Hello :)

I read something about the different types of sugars in fruit
and that glucose is easier to digest (and so better) than
fructose. I found out that these two plus sucrose (what
surprised me) are the main sugars found in fruit. And I found
a table listing all kinds of food and how many grams/100g
these contain of each of these three sugar types. There I can
see that the relative amount of them varies quite remarkable
in different types of fruit.

Is this something to seriously think about? Is it "better" to
eat fruit with relatively high glucose content? And: I
thought sucrose would be one of the main causes of tooth
decay, so should one rather avoid fruit rich in sucrose? How
do we digest and use these sugars?
