If a person was koveah a fruit for Shabbes during the week, does it become hukvah l'Shabbes immediately, and if he eats it now, it's considered a seudas koveah even before Shabbos, or must Shabbes pass for it to be considered so?

Hello there and thanks for your nice question. This issue is discussed in Mishnayos Ma'asros (4:2). According to Beis Shamai he may eat before Shabbos, while according to Beis Hillel it is obligated in Ma'asros immediately.
All the best.
