Look inside the basket that is labeled both because it will either be completely apples or oranges, then you can label the rest.

Pick one fruit out of the basket labeled mixed. It will be either an orange or an apple. The one labeled mixed fruit will be the fruit that was not picked up. The third basket will be the one with mixed fruit.
