Apparently beaded fruit is a "thing"

By strange coincidence, I stumbled across these examples today. A new bead "form", for me anyway!

Looks like a combination of techniques

If you search for beaded fruit ornaments, you will see some that are made using push-pins, some that may be stitched, but I think most of them with very tiny beads are glued.

Nishedha's lemon appears to have some beads attached with pins (the largest ones) and I'd wager most others were glued on.

If I purchase some of these (they are mostly Christmas ornaments) I'll post about them in more detail.

I think the pears Rosanna shows are not beads in the way that we speak of beads. I think they are tiny glass spheres that are for example used in creating reflective surfaces on roads. They do not have holed, so they will indeed be glued on.

Thought I'd put the name of the artist out here: Kathleen Ryan. The pieces are indeed made by adding beads (mostly stone beads) with metal pins onto a shapes base structure.
Most of her pieces are much bigger than you might think, as the fist image in the article shows.

Wonder if the vintage beaded fruit ornaments were inspiration for these?
