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.

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.
