I think what Nicolas suggests is probably the easiest path. Here is one
example that does what I think you are looking for. I use a simple string
comparison on the contents, you could do something more sophisticated.

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(defun fruit-link-face (path)
  (let* ((ln (org-element-context))
(start (org-element-property :contents-begin ln))
(end (org-element-property :contents-end ln))
(contents (if (and start end)
      (buffer-substring start end)
    (if (and contents (stringp contents))
(if (string> contents "j")
   '(:foreground "red")
 '(:foreground "blue"))

(org-link-set-parameters "fruit"
                         :face 'fruit-link-face)

| :face | fruit-link-face |

[[fruit:mango ][test]].  # this will be red

  fruit:apple. # regular org link.

 [[fruit:apple][bera]]. # this will be blue
