You have to set the 1st option as being "Select" eg:
<select id="myDropDown">
<option>Select a fruit....</option>
<option>Apple</option>
<option>Banana</option>
<option>Pear</option>
</select>

Try this in your page load but only when Ispostback is false:

dropdown1.Items.Insert(0, new ListItem("--Select--", "0"));
