Why isn't "Obsahujou cukr jablka a hrušky" considered correct?

Obsahujou is Common Czech, it is not considered correct in official literary Czech. Correct is obsahují.

And the word order is wrong. It would be acceptable for a question, but for a declarative sentence it is wrong. It is connected with the fact that the nominative and accusative are sometimes the same, the order matters than as it does in English.
