The human should consider about his diet nowadays, an appropriate diet has an important role in a healthy nutrition. Physicochemical properties of donat peach, apple, pear, plum and nectarine were determined by different methods, for this 10 g of each fruit weighted and desired analysis took place. Ash amount of samples was measured by burning of samples at 550 °C. Dry matter content of samples was determined according to AOAC method. Also crude fiber, total soluble solids, pH and acidity were determined. Results showed that all fruits can be classified as acidic foods; Plum contains the highest amount of acidic substances among the analyzed fruits while the acidity of the pear is considered the lowest one. Regarding crude fiber pears contain the highest amount of crude fiber among the examined fruits and donat peaches contains he lowest amount. The highest and the lowest amount of ash belong to nectarine and pear respectively. Consumption of variety fruits can provide body needs and guide to a healthy nutrition.
