I vote bananas because they are reliable, nutritious and accessible.

Also you don’t get your hands sticky while eating it, which is practical.

Literally the reason for which I love bananas.

It’s botanically classified as a fruit, but many things we’d call vegetables are classified as fruits (cucumbers, aubergine), and some things we’d call fruits are classified as vegetables (rhubarb), so I don’t think the scientific classification makes sense in normal communication, unless you’re specifically talking about the scientific aspect of them.

me salivating reading through the comments

I seem to like all fruit.

Tbf all fruit is amazing. We might prefer some kinds over others but at the end of the day all of them are masterpices of evolution.

Mango.

Source: Me, just had a fantastic mango and thought "if everyone tasted this mango, it would be their most loved fruit"

Btw are you from south asia by any chance?

Latin Americans and South Asians (especially Indians) love mangoes. In India, we have about 1000 varieties of mangoes. http://www.mangifera.res.in/varieties.php

pretty kiwi (the green variant)

Convenience and taste? Oranges.

Purely taste? Mango. I do not care about getting messy hands, I love it.

As someone comented all kinds of fruit are amazing. But regarding my personal preferences I would say:

  • Bananas.
  • Melons.
  • Watermelons.
  • Grapes.

But I really love them all.

hehe my initial hypothesis was oranges while my gf was pretty sure it is bananas (looks like she was the closest to the truth), but tomatoes really surprised me :)))

Children, the fruits of a mother’s labour. :)

You do not eat them… WTF?

Yeah, it was kind of a bad joke and just sounds weird. My reasoning behind the answer was the following:

  • Your own children are probably one of the things you love the most in this world, it is rare for someone to hate their child. (therefore they are most loved as requested by the question)
  • Conceiving, gestating and giving birth is an effort from the mother, and therefore the offspring can be called the fruits of her work. (and are thus fruit as requested by the question) I thought that giving this answer would be unexpected in the context of this question, but make sense with the reasoning given (“the fruits of a mother’s labour”). I considered that to be a bit funny.
  • Labour is a synonym of work, but can also refer to the last stage of pregnancy. Depending on the meaning the word “labour” takes, the sentence’s meaning does change, but both interpretations still make sense in the context of the answer. I thought that that double meaning adds a bit more to the fun mentioned in the previous point.

I got your witty answer, but most people are not going to be so witty. You have to consider the range of how perceptive people are towards witty phrasings to resonate with their sense of humour.
