apples are good grilled just right with cinnamon and sugar. You have to be careful with them though, they will burn easy with the sugar or they will fall apart.

peaches are great grilled with a little honey as are figs with proscuitto and blue cheese.

You can grill almost any type of fruit, some will be easier (due to their firm structure, like apples) others (like bananas) will need some care.

Lemons, oranges and grapefruit all grill well. Their insides go jammy and slightly caramelised. Mangoes are another fruit that grills well, then you can dice it and make a mango salsa. You can also do the same for avocados as well and create a slightly smoky flavoured avocado salsa (or guacamole) that goes great when paired with a sweet or smoky paprika.

The only fruit I have grilled is pineapple, and added brown sugar to carmelize. They were fantastic!

when jersey or georgia peaches are in season, i love to grill them with some brown sugar or honey.
freestones are the best since the pit comes out easily, so you can slice them in half, pull out he pit, double skewer them a couple at a time all facing the same way. i like to spray the open side with a little cooking spray, grill them with that side down jut to get marks, then turn them over. sprinkle brown sugar or honey on the open-grill marked side, and close the lid to let them warm thru and the sugars melt, and they get a little smokey.

pineapple is my second favourite fruit to grill, interleaved with chunks of teryaki marinated fish and sweet onions.

pear halves are also good to grill, and when almost done, sprinkle the tops with a little crumbled gorgonzola and chopped walnuts, drizzle with evoo, again - close the grill and let the cheese melt and smoke.

i'll have to try apples this year since my grill is right under my apple tree. in august and september you have to watch out for falling apples when using the grill. i've gotten plunked on my melon so many times that even worn a hard hat and a petzl head lamp at night when trying to grill.

Figs, oh my gosh are the gorgeous on the grill, with a little honey and basil or some fresh mozza melted over. Peaches, apricots, pears, plums (if they are very firm), bananas and apples are some of my other favourites too
