Hello Puzzling community!

Here's a simple question I created recently:

1) Apple = 50 X
2) Banana = 33 G
3) Cherry = 77 Y
4) Dragon Fruit = 137 G

5) Elderberry = ?#1
6) Forest Strawberry = ?#2
7) Grape = ?#3

Hope you enjoy this one!

The number/letters are

The sum of the letters in A1Z26, and then the letter is the number in the alphabet of the number mod26

An example for ‘Apple’:

Apple = 1 + 16 + 16 + 12 + 5 = 50
50 mod 26 = 24
24th letter is X
Apple = 50 X

So for the unknown fruits

Elderberry = 112 H
Forest Strawberry = 232 X
Grape = 47 U
