I know fruit is delicious and good for you. But how to make my brain believe it and eat it more?

I have not a damn thing against fruit, Nature's candy. Admittedly, I am picky about what fruit I like--citrus and melons are off the table, mostly for texture and definitely not for taste--but I want/need to reach for the fruit before I reach for the refined sugar.
I am a baker; I am usually excellent about not eating what I make because I want to move it as a product instead of hoarding it all on my own (and also because I sell it). I keep lots of fruit in the house in an attractive bowl on our dining room table. It's there. I see it. It looks good....but my body and brain steers me right to the cupboard where I inevitably end up having a tablespoon of Biscoff spread or some such instead a damn apple/banana/etc.
If you're a fruit lover, how do you incorporate more fruit and less added sugar into your diet? I am vegan so please keep that in mind when showering me with your genius ideas and suggestions.
