A group of friends love many different fruits and vegetables:

Gordon loves Mango
Monica loves Lemon
Ryley loves Cherry
Lisa loves Broccoli
Otto loves Carrot
Percy loves Pepper
Toby loves Tomato

What troop do these friends form?

Hint:

They don't share their fruits, but they share something else

    $\begingroup$ Carrots and Broccoli are technically vegetables, but I enjoyed the puzzle nonetheless, +1 $\endgroup$ – Gordon Allocman May 2 '16 at 18:46
  • $\begingroup$ I'm just gonna say it right now, a carrot is not a fruit. $\endgroup$ – Klyzx May 2 '16 at 18:49
  • $\begingroup$ @CaelanO'Toole yeah just noticed that, changed it to fruit and vegetables instead $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil May 2 '16 at 18:51

Each person loves a fruit/vegetable that:

Ends with the first few letters of their own name

Gordon loves a Mango
Monica loves a Lemon
Ryley loves a Cherry
Lisa loves a Broccoli
Otto loves a Carrot
Percy loves a Pepper
Toby loves a Tomato

Then you can take:

The letters the friends and the fruits share:
G O M O N R Y L I O T P E R T O

And:

Rearrange them to form the notorious
'Terminology Troop'
