Doomsday Fruit Seeds

This is our Doomsday Fruit Seeds page. Fruits are good for the sweet tooth and they usually have a higher caloric value than vegetables. They do not last long unless you dry them. You can freeze most of them but in a doomsday scenario you may not have electricity. Frozen fruit does not sound too good to me. 

Watermelon rinds can be pickled. 

David has chosen those listed below for their ease in growing and some for their size, smaller sizes tend to mature quicker.

Melons are delicious fruits to eat. They come in many colors and varieties.Melons are delicious fruits to eat. They come in many colors and varieties.

Cantaloupe

This is our Doomsday Cantaloupe Seed section. It gives instructions on how many cantaloupe plants are needed to feed one person for a year.

There are about 60 calories in a cup of cantaloupe. On a 1200 calorie diet, this would be about 20 cups a day. One cantaloupe will fill about three cups. One plant will produce about 2 fruits. This would mean ten plants per day or 360 plants per year. Let's plan on 500 plants so we have some to trade and and some to make seed from.

500 plants will need about 2000 square feet to grow.

Cantaloupe will keep for 1 to  2 days without refrigeration. Cantaloupe can be cut and dried/dehydrated. It will last up to one year dried. You will want to read up on how to dehydrate food naturally since in a doomsday event, there probably will not be any electricity.

One cantaloupe or melon has about 160 calories and contains about 200 seeds.

One watermelon has about 85 calories and contains about 50 seeds.

The trick to getting good fruit is to make sure they do not get any water in the last two weeks of development. Too much water, waters down the taste.

Melon

This is our Doomsday Melon Seeds section. It gives instructions on how many melon plants are needed to feed one person for a year.

There are about 60 calories in a cup of melon. On a 1200 calorie diet, this would be about 20 cups a day. One melon will fill about three cups. One plant will produce about two fruits.

Melons and cantaloupes are pretty much the same as far as calories and planting are concerned.

Watermelon

This is our Doomsday Watermelon Seed section. It gives instructions on how many watermelon plants are needed to feed one person for a year.

Watermelons have about 50 calories per cup. On a 1200 calorie diet, that is about 24 cups per day. You can get about three cups of watermelon from one. That is about 1095 watermelons a year. You would need about 1200 for eating, seed production and trading. Figure about 3 watermelons on average for each plant. This means you would need 400 watermelon plants per year per person.

Watermelon will last about 7 days without refrigeration. It can be dried and the watermelon rind can be pickled.
