Here is the Strawberry with help of backlighting you can see how clear it is.

By comparison here is my Peach, started on the same day. Still hazy and still bubbling a bit.

Both are secondary. Racked and removed the fruit after 10 days I think.

The peaches kept their shape but lost color and texture.

Do you typically put the peaches in the primary or secondary? I've read on here that if you put them in the primary, the yeast will strip more of the flavor out.

I put my strawberries in secondary because of that reason. The flavor of the berries was there, but the cider got more bitter.

I did primary from the start before but now I'm gonna try adding to the primary after a week or so when active fermentation slows down.

Good idea, the fruit flavor will be more present I think.
