Number Theory Level 3

A marketer has five baskets, each of which contain a mixture of lemons and oranges. The total amount of fruit in each basket is indicated by the label on the basket. He pointed to one of the baskets and said:
"If I sell this basket, then number of lemons will be the double of the number of oranges."

How many fruits were in the basket which he pointed at?
