Haven't tried it MJ but I'd figure that neither has got a lot of pectin to give a good set.  I'd suggest some lemon juice, Certo or Blue Circle to help set.

Should work. I always take black pepper on strawberries, melon or papaya.  Salt and pepper on fresh pineapple.  Ground ginger on melon is good too.

That is a big freezer.
I'd go with ginger personally - good with rhubarb
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.
