In your example:

From the crowd I heard, "apple!," "orange!," "grape!," and "banana!."

I would change it too appear as such:

From the crowd I heard, "Apple!" "Orange!" "Grape!" "Banana!"

In other words, I would make the list separate sentences in and of themselves. Different people said each word, so each word stands alone. I might even change the comma after "heard" to a colon.

From the crowd I heard: "Apple!" "Orange!" "Grape!" "Banana!"
