Don't forget lamb with figs and/or apricots. Also, fish and lemon.

I like Prosciutto (an Italian ham) with melon ( either honeydew or cantelope).

So do, it's also wonderful with ripe figs and optionally things like basil, parmesan shavings and/or honey.

I adore peaches and pork (like pork loin) together, same with apples, pears, quinces and orange with pork.

Actually I really like mixing sweet and savoury so I'd be up for most any fruit & meat combo. Raspberry sauce on chicken or turkey is really awesome, especially if it's got a bit of a chilli kick to it

picc, we definitely have the same tastebuds. pork and peaches is incredible together, and a spicy raspberry topping for chicken breasts is awesome.
i guess the moisture and sweetness of the fruit really compliments otherwise lean/dry meats.

Now wait a minute! How many of the aforementioned items are truly fruit? Mushrooms a fruit? I don't think so.

Frankly, I'm not a big fan of fruit and meat, except lemon and seafood. That's mainly because I've not experienced fruit and meat combined, and in my mind they do not go together. I'm sure if I had some of the great culinary minds here prepare a meat and fruit meal, I'd eat it and confidently like it. Alas, I've not had it, and my mind doesn't think they go together.

So true. the natural juices from the fruit do seem to baste or replenish the lost moisture from drier cuts of meat so well. Since my first post I remembered the fab combo of pomegranates and beef, do you like this one too, Bucky?
