22 Fruits High in Potassium - A Ranking from Highest to Lowest

Potassium is an essential nutrient used to maintain fluid and electrolyte balance in the body.

A deficiency in potassium causes fatigue, irritability, and hypertension (high blood pressure).

Overdose of potassium from natural sources is nearly impossible, however, it is possible to consume too much potassium via potassium salts which can lead to nausea, vomiting, and even cardiac arrest. Potassium from fruits, like the ones listed below, are considered safe and healthy.

For those with chronic kidney disease (CKD) who need to lower their potassium, this list can serve as a guide on what fruits to eat or avoid depending on your own restrictions. Most people with CKD should not consume more than 200mg of potassium per serving, or 2000mg per day. This article can only be used as a guide, but the amount of potassium you eat each day should be set by your care provider. See also our list of low potassium foods for more ideas.

Fruits high in potassium include avocados, guavas, kiwifruit, cantaloupe, bananas, pomegranate, apricots, cherries, and oranges. The current daily value (%DV) for potassium is 4700mg, recently increased from 3500mg by the FDA.

Below is a list of fruits high in potassium, for more, see the extended lists of potassium rich fruits, dried fruits high in potassium, and articles on high potassium foods, and high potassium vegetables.

You can also use the nutrient ranking tool to sort over 100 high potassium fruits ranked by per 200 calorie serving or 100 grams.
