No your handling of the comment is fine and produces teh output that you

apple comes from applying templates to the fruit element, so it isn't
handled by the template that you showed at all (which only matches comments)

If you have not defined a template that matches fruit (or all elements)
and you apply templates to that element, then the default template will
be executed, which just applies templates to the element children, and
the default template for test is to copy the text.

So either do not apply templates to element nodes

<xsl:apply-templates select="comment()"/>

or apply templates to everything but for example discard elements

<xsl:template match="*"/>
