 Uro’s and fruit?!

I like to give my girl a varied diet, similar to what she would find tromping around the dessert floor. She gets a fresh assortment of home-grown mustard greens, dandelion leaves and some flowers, kale, yam, zucchini, clover leaves, and collard greens, crushed up nuts and seeds, and twice a month she gets a couple small gut loaded meal worms. But just to see what she would do... I put a small chunk of watermelon in front of her and she gobbled it up like no tomorrow. A few days later I offered her a little piece of mango, and again the same response...

Is it O.K. to give her different kinds of fresh fruit, and if so how often? and what kinds?
