Puzzle Corner Connections: How did you do?

Last week I set you a Connections puzzle which I hope you enjoyed. Now it's time for the answers...

How did you do?

I asked you to answer the questions below, and take the letter as indicated from your answer to complete the blank boxes. For multiple word answers, I asked you take the letter from a particular word if not from the first.

The answers to the questions and the completed line of boxes all had something in common. How early did you make the connection? Did it help you with some of your answers?

Question Answer
Title of a novel by Jeanette Winterson (1985), also adapted for TV (5) Oranges are not the Only Fruit
Place in New York where John Lennon's memorial is situated (3) Strawberry Fields
Name of the group with Freegle, Bingo, Droopy & Snorky as members (2, 4, & 6 of second word - just one of them will do) The Banana Splits
Name of the purple piece in Cluedo (1 of both words - again, just one of them is needed) Professor Plum
Star's surname of 'Some Like it Hot', 'The Apartment' & 'The Odd Couple' (2) Lemmon
'I don't give a ...' - a phrase sometimes said by someone who doesn't care (1) Fig
Name of the film awards given on the day before the Oscars (1st letter of second word) Golden Raspberries
Citrus fruit whose name sounds like its appearance (1) Ugli
National symbol of New Zealand (2 or 4) Kiwi
Sounds like the flow of electricity (7) Currant

So the new word is Grapefruit and the connection is they are all fruit.

If you enjoyed this garden related puzzle here are some more. There is a link to the answers in each puzzle (no peeking!), unless the link is given below.

Have fun!
