Default Adding fruit to secondary questions

Has anyone ever added fresh fruit to the secondary as opposed to an fpak?
If so how long did you leave it and what were the results?

You mean in a wine kit? No, but I also never make kits with f-packs in them, as I don't do sweet wines.

If you add fruit without stabilizing the wine, the fruit will ferment out.

It has been stabilized but the fruit is light flavored.
