I've read that quả can be used for both fruit and round things in general. Don't know if that's the answer, but it's my guess.

This is the explanation from the classifiers excercise: "Quả and trái accompany fruit most of the time, but can be used for words that resemble a small, spherical or near spherical object (soccer ball, shuttlecock, any sport ball, and even grenade and bomb)."
