Doomsday Broccoli Seeds

Broccoli is a cool and warm weather crop.  Some can even be grown in the heat of summer.  I have grown broccoli down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Broccoli can be eaten raw or cooked.  It is good either way.

One cup of broccoli has about 25 calories.  This is not a good vegetable to live on but it has other good stuff in it.  It is rich in fiber.

One head produces about 75 calories.  You would have to eat 16 heads or 48 cups of broccoli a day to survive.  Sixteen heads per day is about 5900 plants per year. 

It would be impossible for one person to grow this much in one year.  But unless you have a freezer or will be pickling your broccoli, you will not need much since broccoli cannot be canned, because of its low acid content, so it must be eaten fresh.  It will only last 24 to 48 hours unless you have a way to keep it cool.  Then it will last 4 to 7 days.

Pickling it using a pressure canner will allow you to keep it for up to one year.  I have not tried pickled broccoli myself so not sure how it tastes.  (Just ordered some from Amazon.  I guess I will find out.) (10-20-2018--I received the broccoli.  It is a bit hard but tastes okay.  I guess it could be cooked longer for a softer bite.)

Let's say you would need 6000 seeds a year.

Seeds from the broccoli will last two to three years when stored dry and properly.

There are two colors for broccoli:  green and purple.  Most people expect broccoli to be green but not purple.  Growing some purple broccoli may ward off scavengers.
