Apple ( can get "apple a day keeps the doctor away" out of my head)
Banana - nice to snack on when you are a bit hungry.
orange - vitamin c

I'm partial to bananas, plums and pears. Simply because I like them.

Oh and pickles.

I like apples, bananas and oranges, too. But papayas are very good for digestion. And I also like atemoyas. Cupuassu is a good fruit too, I like its juice with milk.

I'm partial to compressed fruit like skittles and stuff. I think it has taken fruit to a newer level.

Good white summer peaches. There is nothing tastier on earth, if you ask me. Of course, you can can only get them for a few months out of the year, so that definitely adds to their power.

I generally get into a mood for grapes, green seedless are preferred.

I also like Lychees, but the season is so ridiculously short, that growers tend to send them directly to the cannery, when they are ready. Hence, it is very difficult to find. Lychees from a can is good -- fresh is better though.

Vanilla beans. Also sugar cane, asparagus, and celery. Definitely not bananas!

I have an apple and a banana every day.
For a while I had several carrots a day, but failed to turn orange

Kiwi supposedly has most amount and broadest variety of nutrients; additionally at least one study showed it helped increase DNA repair when added to normal diet.
