How Much Fruit in a Cup?

Ever use a recipe that asks for 1 cup strawberries and have no idea how much you should buy at the store to get that amount? Here are a few helpful conversions.

2 medium peaches or nectarines (1/2 pound) = 1 cup sliced
1 quart strawberries (1 pound) = 4 cups hulled & sliced
1/2 pint blueberries (6 oz) = 1 cup
1 medium cantaloupe = 6 cups
1/2 pound of cherries = 1 cup pitted
2 kiwis = 1 cup peeled & sliced
