I'm not sure if I understood you correctly, but what about adding

    class Apple
        attr_accessor :the_hash
    end
    
    class Fruit
        def add_something(obj)
            # Using the_hash here
            # Alternatively, use instance_variable_get(:"@the_hash")
            # I haven't tested both, however
        end
    end

I don't think, however, that such a procedure would be desirable.
