Default Adding fruit

Someone gave me a mr beer wheat extract kit and I want to add some kind of fruit like blueberry or raspberry for my wife. At what point should I add it and should I use a purée or fresh berries and how much for a 2 gallon batch?

add it to secondary and read up on using fruit. many LHBS carry fruit puree that's ready to go so you don't have to worry about introducing contaminates with the fruit.
