Thread one of each type of the fruit onto an 8-inch bamboo skewer, or make mini-kebabs by threading 2 or 3 pieces of fruit on sturdy wooden toothpicks. Refrigerate, covered until ready to serve, for up to 4 hours. Serve the fruit kebabs on a platter, lined with mint, and with dips, nuts, and coconut, if desired
