See if there is interest for this.

1. Each day I will post 10 questions, at random times of the day.
2. Each Quiz runs exactly 24 hours.
3. The first person that has all 10 questions right, wins. Or if no one has all questions right, the best one wins.
4. You can only post answers ONCE for the same quiz.
5. No cash involved. Just glory. :)

I am with Ros with 1,4,5,6,7. Peach for 8 and Lime for 9 and tutti fruiti?

The others I didn't know :D

Good job, ladies!! Since you've cooporated to cover them all, I'll round off the quiz and we can go for 3 quizzes in one day!!

1. Apple
2. Bananas
3. Oranges - hints were to Jeanette Winterson's "Oranges are Not the Only Fruit" and Prokofiev's "The Love for Three Oranges"
4. Cherry
5. Coconut
6. Tomato
7. Pear it is - it's healthier than being apple or watermelon-shaped (thankfully), although I'm not sure if the pear is meant to be upside down
8. Peach - reference to Roald Dahl's childrensbook "James and the Giant Peach"
9. Oooo, had to check but yes they used both lemons and limes
10. Tutti frutti - hehehe ;)

Yes, indeed we have a tie!! :D

I've sent my five questions to Rosa so she can post all ten.

It does seem the same people do the quiz... I guess others don't like them.. and maybe we need a new way of posting? I tried getting people to send me P.Ms.. then I got busy and couldn't log on! *grins* Oops!

just to kick the quiz off and up the board I'll answer one :)

10. Lady Jane Grey sometimes known as the '9 day Queen'. S'how long she lasted before she got the chop :)

Oh, so we're doing them one at a time today?
Oki - 2. 60

As for the quiz itself, it usually seems that a bunch of people will reawaken it, then it slows down and starts over. But yeah, maybe another way of posting would attract a wider audience, I'm a bit confused about the PMing thing, though? :D

So am I. If anyone has any fresh ideas about a new way of posting and attracting more people, it would be best to post them here. But I'm still looking forward to Fruit Quiz Part II.
