Tonnes, it feels like! I buy a bunch of bananas every day or two, and a bag of apples, and oranges every week, and we always have fresh berries and grapes. I also buy a lot of canned peaches and frozen mix fruit.

That's a lot of fruit. I like it. I love fruit. Pity it goes bad so quick :-(

When local strawberries, blueberries, peaches, watermelon, etc. are in season I eat easily 4+ servings of fruit a day. At this time of year, I typically eat 2 servings a day. This week I bought bananas, raspberries, cantaloupe, grapes, and apples. I eat them in the order in which they go bad. Raspberries get eaten the day I buy them or the next day, then the cantaloupe, then the grapes, and finally the apples and bananas.

Not much at all actually. I'm much more of a vegetable, bean, grain guy.

When I go to the store, however, I'll usually buy a bunch of bananas, ~4 apples (or alternatively peaches), and either lemons or limes ~2. That's about it for what we traditionally think of as fruit, especially now that it's getting colder.

2-3 servings/day for 2 peeps. Usually buy a bunch of bananas every week plus a couple of apples and grapefruit. Keep a couple of big bags of frozen berries and plenty of prunes, raisins and dried dates on hand.

I buy plenty of fruit per week even though I'm on my own. This week I have:
-2 boxes of grapes, green and red
-1 bag of pears
-1 bag of oranges
-Frozen mango slices
-Frozen cherries
-Canned peaches

And I eat all of that in a week too

I usually buy 10 apples and 6 or 7 clementines. I love my apples so I can quite happily munch my way through 2 or 3 of those a day! I have to be careful with fruit because with me living by myself, if I don't eat it in huge quantities, it goes off!

I buy more in the summer than I do in winter. I buy more veggies, on average, than I do fruit but I can go through 1/2 a watermelon, a cantaloupe, 4-5 peaches and a bag of grapes, easily in a week, if I'm so inclined. In the winter it's usually a few apples and 4-5 bananas every other week or so.

Not as much as I'd like


I did out weekly shop today and I got 6 bananas and a box of about 20 plums. We also have oranges and kiwis that were given to us free.

Fruit is soooooooo expensive. There is a market nearby, I'm going to make a real effort to go on my day off each week and stock up there. I wanted to buy some mini-oranges today like mandarins or clementines and they weere about 30p each in the supermarket, and that's not even one serving of fruit!

We eat a lot of veg though. I buy frozen which is so much cheaper and doesn't go off. We always have cauliflower, broccoli, carrot and swede, sweetcorn, peas, green beans, okra, kerela and spinach in the freezer. As well as that I buy fresh aubergines, butternut squash and lauckis each week.

depends on prices, but on average, probably four servings a day. I think fruit alone probably comes to about a fifth of my total bill for the month.
