I have found that basic patterns are sometimes the hardest to find, especially for free. This can make teaching a skill troublesome when simple and basic are required. Young and old, there are times when a bit more step-by-step help is needed in order to gain success. I know that on my fibro fog days, I require an easy-to-follow pattern, one that can act as a check list to cross off as I go.
Years ago I worked up a few dozen quilting patterns that I could use when I was giving tutorials on basic quilting for beginners. Now I find I am doing the same thing in crochet. So here is my first pattern and I hope a few more will arrive in the next weeks and months.

The pattern has instruction for the fruit, but the bat wings and cat ears can easily be made from craft felt or free form crochet.
I also made a lemon by adding an extra round of single crochet at the beginning and the end to make the ends pointed.
I hope my efforts help others, and that more skilled pattern writers and crochet artisans forgive me for any bobbles and flubs this pattern may contain.
A final note: In case anyone wonders, the white one is a snowball. Not a fruit, but he was lonely all by himself.
