Squash and pumpkins keep real good in a root cellar. And they grow great mass to feed my belly. I'm comin at it from what I can grow here in mt. It's cool mostly dry and a short growing season. I really don't know about some of the exotics you're mentioning. My thoughts are leaning more towards what I can store and reproduce after a long cold winter, and what I can start early when it's cold-hence peas and spinach. Avacado would be good if it would grow here, but it wont. My seed kit has at least thirty different seeds right now so thinking on ten is tough. I like your thread-- this is making me think!

All, or most, of the plants/fruit/legumes listed so far would perish in no time if we're thinking of a boat like the ark.
And how many can actually propagate these things from seed?
Curious question, I guess it's more a theoretical question than a practical one. We'd be better off with seed AND live animals, in a real shtf situ.

Thank you. And Kratom can be used in place of poppies for medicinal purposes.

I'm surprised that as ATS members no one has
chosen medicinal herbs
That would be my first choice.
After herbs, tomatoes since they are both fruit and vegetable.
Then I would go with plants that would boost your immune system.
Finally, pole beans for protein since they are so easy to
grow, requiring little space.
