Can it be propagated by planting the purple fruit?

I agree, it does appear to be a variety of Mahonia; a couple for comparison:

Chinese Mahonia (Berberis fortunei)


Leatherleaf Mahonia (Berberis bealei)

Yes, but...it will take years and require some particularly careful work and observation for the first year.

I have never grown or propagated it myself, but I know there are easier ways involving taking cuttings. That's probably what I'd do.
Keep going!
