Speaking in general, people will eat more of of any given food if it's 
served in relatively small pieces-- not just fruit, but small sweets, 
small slices of cake, small pieces of meat, etc., etc.  I think it's due 
to a wish to eat neatly (cut-up fruit is *much* easier to handle) and a 
wish not to waste food by taking a bigger portion than one can eat.
