Get a bag( 1 gallon jug use a plastic shopping bag, for carboys a trash bag should work) roll it length wise so that the opening is at one end and the bottom is on the other. Insert the bottom part of the bag into the carboy. Invert carboy so the fruit is at the neck and blow the bag up like a balloon and
gently pull the bag out allowing it to only deflate enough to fit through the neck.It should pull the fruit out with it. this also works with wine bottles that the cork has pushed into the bottle.... and of course there is a youtube video on this,
and yes I realize this is
but a helpful tip IMO
