Using Count in LINQ

The code is self explanatory....
string[] fruits = { "apple", "banana", "mango", "orange", "passionfruit", "grape" };

try
{
int numberOfFruits = fruits.Count();
Console.WriteLine(
"There are {0} fruits in the collection.",
numberOfFruits);

}
catch (OverflowException)
{
Console.WriteLine("The count is too large to store as an Int32.");
Console.WriteLine("Try using the LongCount() method instead.");
}

// This code produces the following output:
//
// There are 6 fruits in the collection.
