How to say 'some' of some item

Hi, everyone ...

I'm confused about how to say 'some' of something - as in 'I want to buy some fruit'.

One of the textbooks I'm working with seems to indicate that you communicate this with 几个 (or whatever measure word) - so the sentence above would be '我要买几个水果'. But what if I just dropped the 几个? Wouldn't '我要买水果' work also?

Thanks,

Tim
