Frank,
You can look into carrots, sweet potatoes, and yams, for alternate sources of relatively dense non-fruit carb blocks.

Or you could just up your vegetables as much as you can stomach and fill in the gaps with fruit.

Frank, I've gone to sweet potatoes. I have no more room for veggies and wanted to cut some of the fruit. If you've got room for some green stuff, eat more veggies. Otherwise, shift to something more dense like sweet potatoes/yams.

Kevin:
yams glycemic index + google

They are a good option. It is possible to overdo them but they will not present the fructose problem.
