This is our Doomsday Beefsteak Tomato Seeds Page. It gives information on David's Garden Seeds®.
One cup of tomatoes contains about 30 calories. One beefsteak tomato will usually fill up one cup. May even have a bit left. Tomatoes have many wonderful benefits. You can read about these on the internet.
But you would not want to live on a diet of tomatoes. Hopefully there will be other things to eat.
A fresh tomato will only last about 7 to 14 days without refrigeration.
So based on a 1200 calorie diet, one would need to consume about 40 cups of tomatoes per day.
One should be able to get at least 40 tomatoes off one plant.
One plant per day is 365 plants. So we would plant 400 plants for eating and seed production for the following year and reserves. Always have reserves in the event that something goes wrong with one batch.
should be able to plant the 400 plants on about 1/4 acre of land.
Don't plant all your seeds at one time. Space them out so that you can
extend your harvest season and are not overworked from from harvesting
and processing tomatoes.
There are many YouTube videos that talk about recipes for tomato storage. There are also many videos that explain how to save seeds from tomatoes. We will not repeat this information.
You will want to have materials on hand for processing your tomato harvest.
You would need about 40 cups a day of tomatoes. This would be about 400 plants to produce all you need. Do not plant them all at the same time. Stagger them for a staggered harvest. These mature green so a scavenger may think there is something wrong with them and by-pass them. They may think the same thing with the purple one as well.
Make dried chips. Make a spice from the dried tomatoes. Maybe you will even have enough ingredients to make tomato ketchup or salsa. Tomatoes can be peeled and stored in 32 ounce contain jars. Tomatoes, when ripe, will not last long so they will need to be processed immediately after harvesting.
