This is our Doomsday Zucchini Seeds page with information on doomsday zucchini from David's Garden Seeds®.
This is our Doomsday Zucchini section. It gives instructions on how many zucchini plants are needed to feed one person for a year.
There are about 25 calories in a cup of zucchini. Based on a 1200 calorie diet this is 48 cups a day. I hope you like zucchini.
One zucchini will make about one cup. One plant will produce about 20 zucchinis a season. So you would need 2 and 1/3 plants per day. This is 851 plants per year.
A zucchini will produce about 25 seeds. This would be another 25 plants. Let's plan on 1000 plants per year. You would need about 1/4 of an acre to grow this many plants.
Zucchini fruits are picked when they are small for eating. If you want to produce seeds, let them mature. You will find the meat is not as good in larger zucchini and there is not much of it since you are using it for seeds.
Zucchini will not ripen any more once they are picked. They will last about one to two weeks unrefrigerated. Zucchini can
be dried and it will last for several months. And it can be canned
where it will last for a year or more. And if you like the taste you
can pickle it.
You will need drying and canning equipment if you want to store zucchini long term.
This is a lot of cutting but in a doomsday event, you won't have much of anything else to do.
Plant so you can harvest throughout the growing season.
