Can someone help me out with gender of "two"? Why is it două and not doi? Thanks!

"două" is for feminine nouns and "doi" is for masculine nouns. In Romanian there are also neutral nouns, which simply behave like masculine nouns in the singular form and feminine nouns in the plural form. "Fruct" is neutral, so its plural is feminine, thus "două".
