Another fruit to consider would be apple.

If you would consider using preserves instead of fresh fruit and honey, fig preserves or quince paste would be good.

The other day, I roasted black grapes at 400 degrees with olive oil and salt for about 20 minutes. Then put them on crostini with a soft cheese and honey sprinkled with mint and a couple grinds of black pepper. It was delicious!

Medjool dates.
Sweet of date with the salt tang of the cheese!
