you said that we use des only with countable nouns, does that means that uncountable nouns are treated as singular in french ?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using du, de la, de l', des to express some or any (partitive articles)"

You will use du, de la, de l' (some) for uncountable nouns which are singular articles:
J'ai de la confiture d'abricot, si vous préférez? = I have some apricot jam if you prefer?
Il y a du bon chocolat dans le placard. = There is some good chocolate in the cupboard.
Nous avons de l'argent à changer en arrivant. = We have some money to change on arrival.
Hope this helps!

That's an interesting question June...
In French fruit is very countable -
We say for instance:
"Tu veux un fruit?" which would translate in English as, "Do you want a piece of fruit"
J'ai des fruits comme dessert = I have (some) fruit for dessert
