How do we keep the fruit flies away?

So it's summer. The fruit is great. We like to keep it out in bowls in the kitchen so someone can grab a peach or a banana or an apple or a mango if the mood strikes. Sadly, the fruit flies seem to get more out of it than we do. The fruit is NOT rotten or even overripe. But we can't seem to keep them away. Short of keeping it in the 'fridge, does anyone know of a simple solution for keeping them away? Is there some kind of natural repellent (bay leaves?) that we could use?
