Default Time Frame for Fruit Puree

My beer is two weeks old. I fermented in the primary for 1 week, then racked the beer and it is now sitting on fruit puree for about a week. How long can I keep it on the fruit. I would like to go 2 weeks on the fruit, but I do not want the fruit to spoil of the beer to go bad. So how long can I keep beer on fruit? Thanks.

3-4 months, but 2-3 weeks is plenty.

Hmm, I would have thought that the fruit Puree would spoil if left at 78 degrees that long. But it's nice to know I don't have anything to worry about. Thanks,

It has to have bacteria and mold present to make it spoil, as long as you cleaned it properly it'll just sit in the beer.
