Every individual is different and not all prefer the same things. A few of our cresteds rarely touch baby food or fresh pureed fruits. Others devour the stuff. Your gecko just might not enjoy the taste; try other nectar fruits like mangos, pears, and guava. I have found each of them to be extremely enjoyed by all my rhacs. Also try presenting the fruit in front of him on a spoon. Many crested geckos will readily except it. Additionally do not worry about him eating just crix. The protein is far more important to his growing body then the fruit. There was a thread a couple of weeks back about this and you might want to do a search for it. Anyway, just keep trying to give him fruit, he might not like it now but he may later. Good luck!
