HIV transmission is not possible in above scenario, fruit acidity may be irritating to your mouth ulcers.

A MOUTH ULCER IS FROM STRESS OR TOO MUCH FRUIT YOU ARE EATING.HIV IS A BLOOD TO BLOOD CONTACT SO PRACTICE SAFE SEX AND CUT DOWN ON THE AMOUNT OF FRUIT YOU EAT. FRUIT HAS NO BLOOD BUT IF YOU SHARE IT WITH SOMEONE WHO IS HIV POSITIVE AND YOU HAVE BLEEDING GUMS THAN YOU ARE AT RISK.
