None of your options is incorrect, hussamk2000, but I personally prefer the second. The first one is somewhat ambiguous; you might mean that you like neither apples nor bananas, or that you don īt like apples with bananas. The third one would probably be used only to emphasize your dislike of these fruits. It īs longer and clumsier than the second. And carrasclet īs suggestion is fine as well.
