Growing Doomsday Zucchini Seeds

This is our Growing Doomsday Zucchini seeds section. It gives instructions on how many zucchini plants are needed to feed one person for a year.

Each spring and again in the fall, we grow zucchini in our garden here in Texas. It is very prolific. You definitely get your money's worth when you grow zucchini. If it gets to be about 95° Fahrenheit or higher, the zucchini will not grow fruit so it needs to be grown in early spring and then again around the first week of September. Zucchini spreads out so each plant will need several feet to itself. It is not one of those plants that does well in tight rows. You will have to monitor the length of the fruits. A good zucchini tastes best when it is about eight inches long. Do not let it grow to be the size of a baseball bat unless you are growing it for seed. Big zucchinis do not taste good at all.

Zucchini comes in many colors, shapes, and sizes.Zucchini comes in many colors, shapes, and sizes.

There are about 25 calories in a cup of zucchini. Based on a 1200 calorie diet this is 48 cups of zucchini 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 while not refrigerated. 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. If you like the taste you can pickle it. Of course, you can freeze dry it and it can last up to 25 years!

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.

Now, let's talk about the health benefits of doomsday zucchini seeds. The fiber in zucchini promotes gut health. It promotes bone health with Vitamin K, manganese, and magnesium.
