4 racking method
I agree with the 4 racks when doing a fruit mead or beer. But, when do you 
add it? How long are you leaving the fruit in? 

I usually put the fruit in the second rack. Then leave the fruit in for 4 
weeks. I will freeze the fruit before adding. That starts the break down 
process. Putting the fruit in during the vigorous fermentation of the first 
rack will usually strip the flavors of the fruits
