Yes, but it's best to soak dried fruits in water overnight which will make them more easily digestable. Be sure to chop the fruit into small pieces prior to soaking it. Here's a good synopsis by VCA on the feeding of Tuck: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/toucans-and-toucanettes-feeding/933
