My understanding of fruit in English is like fish: multiple fruit of a particular type are "fruit". Multiple fish of a type are "fish". However, multiple species of fruit are "fruits" and multiple species of fish are "fishes" (this latter in particular is essentially unknown outside of academic use).
Does fructele refer specifically to different types of fruit, or is it simply multiple fruit? If it can be the latter, then "those fruit" should be accepted I think.
There is no "alea" in the Notes: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/ro/Demonstrative-Pronouns-and-Pronominal-Adjectives/tips-and-notes
