Which veggies are acid-loving?

I have Garden Lime as a soil amendment for my container veggie gardening, but I also have Garden Gypsum for my container blueberries. Anyone have any idea which veggies are acid-loving? If so, do you use gypsum for them instead of lime?

The only one I ever think about is the Potato. I think it would be a good idea to use gypsum instead of lime for them. I mix 50% dolomite, 25% regular lime, and 25% gypsum so that I get plenty of calcium, magnesium and sulfur. I also mix that with cottonseed meal and I really have no idea how any of this effects soil ph. I'm just trying to get everything the soil food web needs to be healthy and active and hope everything works out for the best. But I would never put this mixture into my blueberries.

Agree, Many vegetables will tolerate a fairly large range of pH, but only the potatoes ( Irish or Sweet) tolerate Blueberry soil. Even they produce better at higher pH.
