Now you can learn about Doomsday Bush Bean Seeds from David's Garden Seeds®.
This page gives nutrition information, how many to plant to eat and how many bean plants to plant for harvesting seeds.
One bush bean plant will produce about 1/2 pound of beans if all goes right.
1/4 pound of bush beans is about one cup. One cup has about 44 calories. So you would need about 30 cups of green beans per day to live. This is about 8 pounds per day.
You would need 16 plants per day for one person or 5900 plants per year. This is just for eating.
Remember, we are just hypothetically speaking here--hopefully there is more than green beans to eat.
One plant will produce about 100 seeds. So you would need to plant 60 plants for next year's seeds and 60 plants as back up.
You would need to plant a total of 6100 plants, let's say 6200 should cover it.
can plant about 400 seeds in a raised bed that is 4 x 8 feet for 32
square feet. It would take about ten of these to grow your green beans.
You would want to stagger your plantings so you are not harvesting all the green beans at once. Hopefully you will have a way to can them and store them. Green beans will last only a day or so if there is no refrigeration.
Bush beans cannot be dried and eaten like dry beans. I guess you could try it, but they would not taste very good.
Beans are easy to grow and easy to preserve. They can be grown in most any type of soil. There are purple and yellow beans that scavengers may think are not any good since they are not green.
They can be eaten raw, steamed or boiled.
You will need about sixteen plants a day for one person. Hopefully you have more to eat than green beans. If green beans are all you have, you will need about 6200 seeds per year per person. This is for eating and producing next year's seeds.
