None I have heard/read of.

The seeds would be preserved, yes.  But without either a fruit mummy or _Mei 
long_ levels of preservation, I'm not sure we would know that it was - for 
example - the one fruit the size of a watermelon, as opposed to several 
apple-sized fruits.
 
 
I'm happy to be wrong, however.
