Fruit

Fructophobia (from fructus, Latin for "fruit") is the fear of fruits. People fear fruits often due to same reasons why people fear vegetables (lachanophobia), like eating seeds that may germinate inside one's body or getting infested with insects or worms. Sufferers would avoid eating fruits as well as fruit-flavored stuff like soft drinks.

Symptoms of fructophobia include shortness of breath, tremors, weeping, screaming, fainting, increased heart rate, increased body temperature, loss of control and urge to flee. Fructophobia is usually treated using behavioral therapy and anti-anxiety medications, but attempting self-help first is recommended.
