In brief: They are many

There is a long list of foods that cross-react with latex.
This means that because of your latex allergy, you may also have reactions to other fruits an d vegetables. Banana is the most common. Also kiwi, pineapple usually it involves itchy tongue, mouth or throat when eating these this is called oral allergy syndrome.
