There is plenty of information on this board about several different ways to brew with fruit. I suggest you comb the website and take in any piece of information you can get.

The fruit most commonly is added in secondary though.

I would suggest using juice or puree for your first fruit batch. It is the easiest to work with and provides acceptable fruit flavor. But, as dfc said, look at the site first.
