Ex. The Gift basket carries mangoes, bananas, pineapples, and a watermelon.

Or, it should be

Ex.The Gift basket carries mangoes, bananas, pineapples, and watermelons

Can I use both singular and plural nouns when adding things to a list?

    If there's only one watermelon, your first sentence is correct. – Peter Shor May 15 '18 at 13:03
  • Yes, you can have singular and plural nouns in one sentence in a list. – AmE speaker May 15 '18 at 18:47

Both your example sentences are correct. But it depends on the exact situation.If there exists a case where there are more than one melon, then you should use 'watermelons' else just go with 'a watermelon'
