With some of the points in the audio, maybe have the characters hop just a bit to help push some reactions.
The banana can use top eyelids to get more facial expressions from him.
The eye movements are quick and nice, they makes me feel like those characters are putting in thoughts to what they're saying. Maybe add in some more eyebrow poses to make them look angry or confused for more emotion.
... if an apple ate meat... Well, I'd be very concerned.
I've decided to ignore the fact that the banana seems to be the one who does eat meat.
Carnivorous vegetables aside, lip sync is good except towards the beginning I feel like.
Decent lipsync, needs animation.
The second shot could be a close up on the banana ("you're a what?") : it would be a more efficient way to introduce your character. Then you go to you medium shot ("I don't eat meat"). And I would have put someting funny there... like a third character who is a steak maybe, I don't know.
But anyway you could push a bit more your story I think. And keep it simple, get rid of the zoom in at the end, stay on a close up.
This is the most creative one so far... I love how you decided to do fruit cause it makes it funny hahah
