Various fruits make my mouth itch. Is this an allergic reaction?

In brief: Pollen Food Allergy

This is a fairly common allergic reaction to fresh fruits and also some fresh vegetables.
Heat labile proteins in fresh fruits/vege share similarities with specific pollens. The vast majority of these reactions are mild and limited to the mouth. If the foods are cooked, no reaction will occur.
