Most of the fruit is either long gone and forgotten, or evolved into some hardy desert plant, or only nowat scattered oase.

Either the Praxians know of a fruit at an oasis and eat it, or they've never seen it before and regard it as foreign. I would imagine that because food is so scarce they would test any new fruit that looked like it would be regularly available just to see if it was poisonous.

Any one off appearences (as any new food might initially be) would likely be treated with wariness, but I couldn't imagine that they'd have the same response as they do with animals. After all, they are Beast Riders and not Fruit and Vegetable Riders :)
