hey catman have you ever tried the gurneys giant canteloupe? i did 2yrs ago and had some about 14+lbs and they was sweet to. the best all around one i have tried but the seeds are kinda pricey. out of the 2 vines that didnt drown in a flood we had i bet i had 15-20 of them and none of them under 8-10lbs
that is the best tasting cantaloupe I have eaten, and I might consider buying seeds for them again this year. They would not grow big for me though. Regular cantaloupe size but very worth growing because of the flavor.

I dont have a pressure cooker to can them but I could if the acidity is high enough for a water bath. Haven't tried it though. Grew too many tomatoes last year, downsizing this year. More room for cantaloupes... speaking of which, gotta buy cantaloupe seeds too.


We never used a pressure cooker for tomatoes. We did use a vey large pot to heat them in, then sealed the tops with a water bath. We did scald and peal the tomatoes before we canned them, and added a little salt to each jar.


This it what I have always done also.

A couple table spoons lemon juice will lower pH for water bath canning. Extension has great canning books available.

I asked this on another post, but was kind of hoping to get a quick answer so I can get some seeds on order today...

Out of these tomatoes listed here, brandywine sudduth, opalka, sungold F1, black krim, red brandywine (landis valley strain), kellogg's breakfast, giant belgium, delicious, and german red strawberry, Yellow Brandywine, & Marianna's Peace, what would you say would be your choice for canning tomatoes?

Many thanks for all the education you've been giving me lately.

Opalka would be my first choice. Red brandywine might be good too because they are small and round tomatoes. But opalka is a low moisture paste type tomato like a Roma but with much more flavor. Would probably be best for canning but then I have never canned tomatoes.
