Default Added Fruit Question

I just bottled some cherry wheat last night and i noticed down at the end of the last bottle some cherry sediment went into the bottle, thats not my problem, i read that you brew the beer in a primary then rack it on top of the cherries in a secondary. or would it be better to add the cherries to the primary then rack to a secondary for clarity sake. just a thought. what would produce better taste?

Ferment in the primary, rack onto cherries in the secondary, then you can rack to a tertiary for a few days just to make sure you don't get fruit bits in the bottles

This is exactly what I do. I've made 3 brews with cranberries this way.
