Growing Doomsday
Broccoli Seeds

Growing doomsday broccoli seeds in a survival situation can be challenging but not impossible. 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 enjoyed raw or cooked, roasted or steamed.Broccoli can be enjoyed raw or cooked, roasted or steamed.

Broccoli can be eaten raw or cooked. It is good either way. Broccoli can help to lower your cholesterol. It supports cardiovascular health. Broccoli has a high amount of Vitamin A and it is loaded with antioxidants. This means it provides good support for your eyes, helping to prevent cataracts and macular degeneration as you age. Eating broccoli is a very good habit to have. Broccoli provides fiber and can prevent cancer and reduce inflammation.

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. A freeze dryer will allow you to keep it for up to 25 years.

Pickling it using a 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.) With a freeze dryer, you could preserve broccoli for up to 25 years.

Let's say you would need 6,000 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.
