It is unnecessary to add "太"

It is necessary. Without the 太 it would translate to the same sentence, but WITHOUT the very. Here, in context the connotation is more towards "really". It's saying that it's not too fresh, where as without the 太 it would simply right out say that it was not fresh, at all.

Do "这些水果不很新鲜" express the same meaning?

You cannot use 很 when using the negative.
