Supposing you need to find the certain fruit with highest frequency in the Fruit column as bellow screenshot shown, please do as follows.

1. Select a blank cell for showing the value with highest frequency, then enter formula =INDEX(B:B, 10000*MOD(MAX(COUNTIF(B2:B16,B2:B16)+(ROW(B2:B16)/10000)),1), 1) into the Formula Bar, and then press the Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys simultaneously.
