Favourite fruit and cheese pairing.

I was having a lovely hunk of Keens cheddar with an cox's orange pippin apple and musing on how sometimes the simplest things are the best and maybe this is the perfect cheese and fruit match.
Or maybe Stitchelon and comice pear is better?
What are other great cheese and fruit matches?
