The name of this feature is "queue browsing". RabbitMQ does not support
this directly. The workaround of consuming all messages in a queue and
requeuing non-matching messages is a messaging anti-pattern and discouraged.

In your analogy the solution is to route messages about different fruits
to different queues and check their queue lengths.
