the pronunciation is to close to Frites for my liking!

It seems the sentence sounds like: 'free' (with the French r "scratched", of course). Is the 'u' of 'fruits' somehow subtle?

Not that much, in my experience. "u" and "i" are distinct. Again, the robot voice is not very accurate sometimes.

Difficult to help you here. There is not phonetic resource on this site. anyway, this is a link you may find useful. on the page that will open, scroll down to the word "orange", click and you will open an audio file saying it for you : http://french.about.com/library/pronunciation/bl-audiodico-o.htm

Google translate provides an option to hear almost every word in any imaginable language.

Doulingo, not being a multibillion dollar corporation, is forced to use a system that is indistinct on occasion.
