In actuality chicken poop is so high in nitrogen it will burn plants unless left out to compost. As for using the chicken litter too...well, the wood if not composted will leach nitrogen from soil. The bottom line here is to compost. Take your litter and poop to an area you made for composting. I use a free hard wood pallets made from scratch compost bin. If you want just make a pile in corner of yard. Till it once a month and if dry water it much. This will aid in breaking it down to be perfect garden or flower pot additives.
Here is a really easy to understand guideline for using chicken litter/manure in the garden.
I got lost there and forgot the original question....no still. Chicken poop will not make your plant fruit inedible. As above, it should and must be composted due to excess nitrogen that does burn/kill plants. But in general it's no different than using Moo Poo or some other composted large mammal manure you probably buy but didn't know where it came from. Composted chicken is stronger but with liter will be a free alternative with volume matching the other sources. It's simply that high in nitrogen, great stuff!
No but it will probably burn them.
