can the adjective pleasant be used to describe fruits?
I have found it in a poem and I do not know if it is a poetical choice or if this adjective can actually be used to describe fruits in ordinary language.
A pleasant fruit? Was the fruit nice to you? Does the fruit have good manners? No, I would call that poetic license. I wouldn't (nor, I think, would most people) think of fruit as pleasant. Delicious, maybe, but not pleasant.

pleasant could be used to describe the fruit itself, but that would be unusual
the uses above are more common
Ripley, yes, it's possible to use the adjective pleasant to describe a fruit. For example,
