No they do not. Land plants do not contain ergosterol; the precursor to vitamin D production. Vitamin D is synthesized in the skin of mammals through exposure of the skin to sunlight. Vitamin D can also be ingested in suppliment form or from foods including yeasts and from mushrooms.

The glucose in apples highly outweighs the amount of glucose in pears, therefore, apples have a higher sugar rate, probably making apples taste better to ants.

The vitamin C and glucose levels can easily be dissolved by their gastric juice and enzymes in their saliva, once glucose and vitamin C are digested in the mouth by saliva, it will leave a sugary taste, which every ant will be probable to like.
