A fruitless week may well be over, but fruit-eating is still not a crime in Spain.
The country has not made a formal ban on eating fruit for any purpose, and the police still monitor the supply of the fruit in supermarkets and grocery stores.
But it has made it a crime to eat the fruit, with fines of up to €50 and jail terms of up from six months.
If you do break the law and get caught, you could end up behind bars for months.
There are only a few countries that actually outlaw fruit, including Russia, the Philippines and Indonesia.
But the country has the most stringent fruit-eaters’ rights law in Europe, which makes it a criminal offence to consume fruit and fruit products on private property.
This means that you could be fined up to 100,000 euros (about $133,000) if you’re caught eating on private land.
In the past, fruit-purchasers have been prosecuted in the courts, but the authorities have also made fruit-consuming a crime with a fine of up $2,000.
And the fruit-related arrests have been rising.
A report from Spain’s Institute for Research on Food and Agriculture last year found that there had been more than 8,600 arrests of people caught with fruit over the past five years.
“This is a worrying trend,” said María García, a researcher at the institute.
The government says that it does not believe that people are becoming more picky about fruit, but there are concerns about the effect that eating fruit on private grounds can have on local people and the environment.
It’s also not clear whether the fruits are being consumed legally, since there are no official statistics on the subject.
But some believe that fruit-picking on private estates could become a problem in the future, since the government plans to build a massive fruit-processing plant at the site of the nearby airport, which is expected to create thousands of jobs.
