This list of fruits are grouped according to their pectin and acid content:

Pectin rich fruits: crabapples, sour apples, lemons, partially ripened oranges, Kumquat, pomegranate, cranberries, partially ripened grapes, damson plums, sour cherries, melons, quinces.

Pectin poor fruits: peaches, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, pineapple, rhubarb, grapefruit, guavas. Low pectin in these fruits can be compensated for by adding some green apple, apple pectin stock, or orange pectin stock.

High acid fruits: currants, raspberries, crabapples, and grapes.

Low acid fruits: pears, peaches, blueberries and sweet apples, sweet cherries, melons.

* Strawberries and apricots contain sufficient acid but are low in pectin.

* Peaches, pears and figs are generally low in both acid and pectin.

*** The preferred fruits for making jelly: crabapples, sour apples, sour berries, sour cherries, grapes, Kumquats, and cranberries. These fruits contain sufficient amounts of pectin and acid to gel.  At first look, it might seem that the finished product will have an acidic taste, but let’s not forget that a considerable amount of sugar will be added, making the product delicious and of the proper texture.
