Where does the "any" come from? DL accepts "Do you have fruit here" also.

Using "any" just emphasizes the distinction in Russian of asking about the existence of fruit when you use есть.

Does the sentence without есть then suggest that you are asking about the possibility of having fruit, like Do you ever have fruit?

У Вас в России фрукты есть? O_o Я думал, что Россия — это северные медведи ходят по улицам и пьют водку. ЛоЛ

Why can't you put у вас есть фрукты здесь?

In theory you can put "здесь" in any place in this sentence (except between "у" and "вас" of course), but for me, as a native speaker, "у вас есть фрукты здесь?" is the most awkward wording, so I wouldn't recommend to use it.
