In a study conducted by Holly White, a researcher in the U-M Department of Psychology, two groups of college students, one group with ADHD, and one group without, were given two tasks.

The students without ADHD seemed to base their ideas off of common fruits such as apples or strawberries, while the students with ADHD had no trouble coming up with unique ideas for new fruits.
