How long have you been eating low carb? If it's been several weeks, you may have achieved ketoadaptation. If so, ketones may not register on ketone strips anymore. This is not a bad thing. It means your body is fully adapted to burning fat for energy and it's using ketones more effectively.
If you haven't been in ketosis for long, try testing again later in the day. I've personally noticed that ketones register the highest in the evening and only a trace amount in the morning.
Lastly, the fruit you ate may have kicked you out of ketosis.
