Java, Indonesia has many small, open-front shops and roadside stalls
which sell a variety of local fruits, found in most cities and
neighborhoods. These are called a "toko buah" = "fruit shop".

shop=farm doesn't seem appropriate, since these should be located at
the farm and have produce mainly from one farm. These fruit shops are
found in towns and cities. They are not operated directly by farmers,
but they buy fruits in the large farmers market or receive deliveries
from several farms, so they can sell several varieties of fruit in
season.

The Indonesian Tagging Guidelines
(https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Indonesian_Tagging_Guidelines#Daily_Needs)
recommend tagging these shops as shop=greengrocer - however a
greengrocer in England usually sells vegetables and other perishable
foods, as well as fruits. There are a few shops like this in
Indonesia, but in Java it's much more common to find a fruit-specific
shop than a shop that sells vegetables and fruits.

Is there a more specific tag that should be recommended for a shop
which specializes in fruit?

I see just 60 uses of shop=fruit in taginfo
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/shop=fruit, and 24 shop=fruits
