Has anyone ever added fresh fruit to the secondary as opposed to an fpak?
If so how long did you leave it and what were the results?

You mean in a wine kit? No, but I also never make kits with f-packs in them, as I don't do sweet wines.

If you add fruit without stabilizing the wine, the fruit will ferment out.

It has been stabilized but the fruit is light flavored.
