    Fruit/a fruit/the fruit

    Do we say "Oranges are a fruit" or "Oranges are fruit"? And also, I wrote in my exam "Oranges are real heavenly fruit", but I'm not sure if that's correct.

    I'm totally puzzled. Help me. Thank you.

    Agreed, also "Oranges are really heavenly fruit" is correct.
