how come my mouth tingle after eating certain fruits?

Most likely acidity: Many fruits have acidic juices which can cause some tingling after eating. Make sure you do not have allergies to them as well. While it is most likely not allergies, an early sign of an allergy can be mild oropharynx irritation. If you start noticing any progression of the tingling or swelling in the mouth, tongue or lips, check in with your physician. Hope this helps!
