How many cups of tomatoes in a peck?
Between 28 and 40 cups. A peck is a dry goods measure equal to 2 gallons dry measure. Cups is a liquid measure equal to 236.8 ml for a (US) cup, 227 ml for a (BI) small cup, and 283.7 ml for a (BI) large (half pint) cup. in british imperial measure a peck is 2 gallons imperial, or 32 cups volume (BI) large cup, or 40 cups volume for the small cup. in (US) measure a peck is slightly larger than 537.6 cubic inches. A cup is 14.4375 cubic inches, so ~37.24 cups (US) = 1 peck volume. The reason dry measure is used is because there is air space in the container, a peck basket here, and it is not completely filled with material, so that when the material, here tomatoes, is cut up the liquid volume will approximately be equivalent to the original dry volume. Thus 1 peck of tomatoes when cut up into usable chunks will approximately be about 2 gallons, liquid measure, or about 32 cups.

How many pints to a peck?
Do not confuse dry weights, such as a peck, with liquid volume measurements. If by pints you mean 16 fluid ounces, this cannot be converted into a peck. A peck is a specific produce measurement, such as a peck of pickled peppers. For this conversion, a dry pint is defined as 0.019445 cubic feet. A peck is 16 dry pints, equalling 0.31111 cubic feet. I just discovered that 1 dry pint = 1.1636 liquid pints. Using this conversion, a peck is equal to 18.6176 liquid pints. This is an American conversion; the British/Imperial system would yield a different answer.
