Hi,
no need to PM about that, you will get your answer here.

Based on what wiki says:
"the solution should progress in the colors of blue (with no glucose present), green, yellow, orange, red, and then brick red or brown (with high glucose present)."
you have just a little reducing agents in that. But I have never done that, so I don't know, how should it look...

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

In your hypothesis, you pick which among the 5 fruits you have must be high in vitamin C. But you know, you can already google it. Somehow you will be just doing a formality when you conduct your testing. Refine your methods according to its availability in your place so it will be easier for you to determine which method you would use.
