In brief: Pollen-food Syndrome

Or oral allergy syndrome.
This is from cross-sensitivity between pollen (birch tree , ragweed in particular) and certain fruits. This is not usually expected to be life-threatening unless the throat or tongue swells up causing obstruction. The best approach is to avoid the offending fruits but may also try an antihistamine 2 hours prior. You likely have hay fever. Foodallergy.Org.
