They eat Timothy hay, Pellets, fresh veggies - but don't over due it because it can cause diarreah which is not good.  They obviously need fresh water, and they like toys to play with like cardboard rolls, or a cat toy like a ball with a little shaker ball inside.  They also like a block of non treated wood to chew on.

Feed rabbit hay (timothy hay is best as alfalfa hay has a lot of protein) a good quality pellet food

Select at least three kinds of vegetables daily. A variety is necessary in order to obtain the necessary nutrients, with one each day that contains Vitamin A, indicated by an *. Add one vegetable to the diet at a time. Eliminate if it causes soft stools or diarrhea.

Alfalfa, radish & clover sprouts
Beet greens (tops)*
Bok choy
Broccoli (mostly leaves/stems)*
Brussels sprouts
Carrot & carrot tops*
Collard greens*
Dandelion greens and flowers (no pesticides)*
Green peppers
Kale (!)*
Mustard greens*
Pea pods (the flat edible kind)*
Peppermint leaves
Radish tops
Raspberry leaves
Romaine lettuce (no iceberg or light colored leaf)*
Spinach (!)*
Wheat grass

(!)=Use sparingly. High in either oxalates or goitrogens and may be toxic in accumulated quantities over a period of time

Rabbits eat specialized rabbit pellets, like a dog eats dry dog food or kibble. 

They also need timothy hay. Alfalfa hay is too rich for them. 

They can have special treats like veggies and fruits but these must be fed sparingly to prevent diarrhea.

I have a pet rabbit that has been "dumped" in the country and I have been feeding it however do not know if I am feeding it properly.
What types of produce/fruit should I be giving him/her and what else can I give for variety?

No lettuce. It fills them up while having no nutritional value, essentially causing them to suffer malnutrition or starvation.

More on what rabbits eat:  They do NOT eat cabbage.  (should not eat cabbage.)  Peanuts is popular as a treat.  I was shocked to learn that myself and still can't get over it. In moderation, obviously: Once in a while.

Let them run loose so they can get lots of fresh grass just make sure they're in a safe place where a dog can't get them.

All these answers are good but I have a rabbit and I've found that her favourite thing to eat is sage. If she could she would spend all day in my garden eating the sage plant.
