Magic Item: The Woundrous Fruit Basket

  Created by my fourth son, who is 11 years old. He calls it 'cleric in a basket'!
  This a large wicker basket, much like an American picnic basket, about 16 inches long, 8 inches wide, and 8 inches deep with a large handle and flip up lids. It always weighs one pound. The basket makes all saves as wood.
  When a basket is first discovered it contains the following fruit:
1d4 kiwi
4d4 bunches of grapes
1d6 cantaloupes
1d6 apples
1d8 grapefruit
1d4 bananas
2d2 mangos
  These each have wide variety of magical effects that occur when eaten:
Each kiwi removes 1d4 years of age.
Each bunch of grapes heal 2d4 hit points.
Each Cantaloupe counts as an entire day of food and water.
Each apple acts as a Neutralize Poison spell.
Each grapefruit acts as a Cure Disease spell.
Each banana acts as a Remove Curse spell.
Each mango counts as Cure Blindness/Deafness spell.

  All fruit fits easily into the basket and the desired fruit is always on top if any is left; the fruit is always fresh and delicious. Eating a 'dose' of fruit takes one round. Nothing else may be placed into the basket.
  When all the fruit is eaten, The basket vanishes only to appear in a random location in the world full of the above fruit.
