We typically get:
A kg of apples
A kg of pears
1 punnet of strawberries
1 punnet of blueberries
For four people. It all gets eaten so no worries keeping it fresh! The berries are washed, cut and portioned out for childcare, and live in the fridge.

Um, a lot. In a day we go through:
4 or 5 bananas
About 1/8 of a watermelon ir 1/4 of a rockmelon, somtimes both
About 500g grapes
Punnet of blueberries (though I only buy 3 of these a week)
Punnet of strawberries
And then throw in either a couple of kiwi fruit, nectarinea, peaches and other in season fruit.
Thats for a family of 5.
I buy it every 2-3 days. I do different things for each fruit - bananas I separate as soon as I buy them and keep on bench, apples in crisper in fridge, cut melons as its needed, most other fruit is kept in crisper as well. Grapes I take out of the bag and keep in a bowl in the fridge and wash as we eat them

I have 3 fruits in the fridge at all times. I buy it once a week. I hide half of it in the shed fridge and bring it out mid week otherwise the boys would eat the lot in a matter of days. I find if I buy good quality it lasts the week although I do store it in the tupperware storage containers. Wouldn't have a clue how much I would spend on fruit but it would be significant I'm guessing as we are all big fruit eaters.

About 3kg min bananas, 1 kg apples, 1 1/2 kg watermelon if it's on special or a good price lol, we also have grapes about 1/2 - 1 kg and if they're 2$ I buy a rockmelon
Bananas are my toddlers staple, apples my pre schoolers. Apples kill me at 5-7$ a kilo :/
I also keep frozen blueberries, raspberries and strawberries in the freezer for oats etc

I buy a fair bit. I'm not really sure what it would be kg wise. Things that don't go off easily like apples I will buy maybe 4kgs of during the weekly shop and then just get few of everything else (bananas, berries, cherries, watermelon, mangos, peaches, nectarines, etc). Then I will do 1-2 more fruit shops depending on what we've used/need ( we all like different things).

Hard to keep track as we are surrounded by orchards and fruit stalls so we tend to just buy as needed every couple of days. Possibly 2 bunched of bananas, few punnets berries (plus fresh picked ones from our place), couple kgs apples, and maybe some extras like kiwi, mango, etc, if on special. We also keep lots of frozen berries in the freezers for baking and smoothies. We love our berries and are very fortunate to live where we do!

Oh gosh...depends what's in season and prices
Bananas - At least 9
Apples (bag) or between 8-10
Watermelon wedge 1
Strawberries punnet 1-2
Oranges in winter - 1 bag/fortnight
Mangoes in summer - 2-3/month
Kiwi fruit on occasion
Tend to only buy what we will eat that week - not always strawberries or watermelon depending on quality and price. I don't buy American grapes. Only buy NZ kiwi fruit.

We usually have 3-4 apples
5-6 blood plums
a kilo of green seedless grapes
punnet of stawberries and blueberries if on special (I'm the berry fan)
That often doesn't last the week

Heaps of fruit; I buy oranges, apples, strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, rockmelon, bananas and grapes every week.
I would buy fruit a couple of times a week whenever we run out.
I store most of my fruit in the fridge but it doesn't last too long in our household as it is eaten.
