Fruit-inspired computing

A question from Askville:

Have there been other computers (other than Apple) named after a fruit?

Yes.

A British company called Applied Computer Techniques (ACT) released a PC-compatible Apricot in 1983. Around 1995, a company called Orange Micro offered a product called OrangePC, which was a hardware PC emulator allowing to run DOS and Windows software on a Mac.
