Top Customer Reviews
Blue Lake Bean Over 150 seeds - Blue Lake is a fresh eating bean only. Instead, consider an heirloom that is good as a dry bean and fresh, such as Cherokee Trail of Tears (which is also drought resistant). That way beans can be eaten fresh or dried, shucked and saved for soup in the winter without canning. Beans are essential as they are they contain the highest source of protein in your garden.
California Wonder Pepper Over 70 seeds- These are large blocky bell peppers. If you must grow a sweet pepper, grow a variety that has more small pods, a slim profile and shoulders that do not face the sky at 90 degrees. It will lessen the chance of sunscald and damage from hail.
Scarlet Nantes Carrot Over 800 seeds- Plant short, stubby carrots instead, like Danver's Half Long. They will do well in all soils, including clay, they will be less mishappen for better storage. Eat the greens too. They have more nutrients than the roots and will stay green well into the fall.
Marketmore Cucumber Over 150 seeds- Cucumbers are a lot of space for very few calories. If you must grow them, grow a bush pickling variety. Bush varieties take up less space and pickling varieties can be eaten fresh, or pickled.
Parris Island Cos Romaine Lettuce Over 900 seeds- Only grow in the winter in cold frames, or very early spring. There are far more nutritious greens like chard, orach, amaranth, quinoa. The calories you expend growing lettuce isn't worth it if you're in survival mode. Take a multivitamin.
Golden Acre Cabbage Over 530 seeds- These get to be 3 to 4 lbs per head, and does not yield much in the ways of calories. I would very carefully consider your storage options before planting a bunch of it.
Detroit Dark Red Beet Over 260 seeds- Excellent choice
Lincoln Shell Pea Over 100 seeds- Good to grow
Lucullus Swiss Chard Over 160 seeds- Chard is the easiest thing to grow in your garden. Nutritious, it is also the most drought, cold, and heat tolerant of any vegetables and has few problems from pests. If you don't know what you're doing, plant more of this one.
Beefsteak Tomato Over 180 seeds- Plant a smaller fruiting variety. Big tomatoes are prone to more problems, such as hail. It's easier to fail with a large fruiting variety. Any medium round heirloom that is golfball to baseball sized and not prone to cracking is a better choice. Smaller tomatoes are also good for sun drying.
Champion Radish Over 320 seeds- Good. Not high in calories, but quick to harvest, and takes up almost no space.
Green Sprouting Broccoli Over 500 seeds- Low in calories. Only grow if it's a winter crop.
Waltham Butternut Winter Squash Over 100 seeds- excellent choice
Bloomsdale Long Standing Spinach Over 260 seeds- Plant this instead of lettuce. It grows early and can be harvested early and planted with something else.
Yellow Sweet Spanish Onion Over 145 seeds- Onions are whole different ballgame depending on where in the US you're located. Yellow Sweet Spanish is a northern storage onion (there are many pungent varieties that store longer). Down South, you don't need to grow long day onions because onions grow year round. If you live in the South, consult a local nursery about the best onion varieties.
Golden Bantam Sweet Corn Over 250 seeds- Corn is the single most important survival item in this can, and sweet corn is not as useful in a survival situation. What you want to get is a drought resistant dent corn. There are many drought resistant dent corn varieties that can be eaten fresh, and which can also be dried and ground into flour or saved for animal feed. Sweet corn is only good for fresh eating.
Hales Best Cantaloupe Over 70 seeds- Poor storage. A morale booster, perhaps, but if your goal is to stay alive...I wouldn't plant very much.
Snowball Self-blanching Cauliflower Over 285 seeds- Low calorie and prone to pests. Again, winter crop only.
Black Beauty Zucchini Over 50 seeds- Don't plant zucchini which is c. pepo, low calorie, and more prone to pests and which has no storage value. Plant Tromboncino or a similar c. moschata squash whose fruit can be eaten during the summer as zucchini or grown to full maturity for a long storing winter squash that tastes like butternut.
Crimson Sweet Watermelon Over 60 seeds- only a little more more useful than cantaloupe, but there are other varieties of watermelon known for their storage quality. Those would be the ones you want to seek out and plant.
If you are serious about preparing for SHTF event, please visit some forums about growing food and practice with a kitchen garden or guerrilla gardening so you understand your local growing conditions. Potatoes will keep you alive more than any plant listed on here. Also, other plants not included in this collection that you should seriously consider adding are amaranth and quinoa. Both are drought tolerant, both provide greens and grain, and amaranth grain is high in protein as well.
Again, I am not knocking this collection for its value or quality of varieties. I'm only criticizing its value as a seed survival kit. People who think they are buying some insurance to protect their families in a SHTF event would do well to consider the caloric needs of their family and look at purchasing 10 varieties well suited to their specific location instead, as well as planting fruit and nut trees.
Also, seeds store much longer when frozen. If you store in an airtight container to keep out all moisture, seeds can last 3 or 4 decades with very little loss of viability. If you invest the time assembling a serious doomsday garden survival kit, you can make it last during the good times by sticking it in the freezer.
The plants grown from these seeds are amazingly fruitful too. We planted six cucumber plants two years ago and ended up with more than 200 cucumbers harvested!!! I had more cucumbers than I knew what to do with, so I made a new cucumber salsa recipe that the guys at work love.
In short, this is a heck of a deal for what you get. Keep the seeds in the sealed packages and they last a long time. Open them and use them, and you can still get 3-5 years of solid gardening out of them, not to mention any seeds you save from one harvest to the next. Whether you're planning to try your hand at a small veggie garden, you're an experience farmer, or a concerned citizen looking to secure a solid source of renewable food you can't really go wrong with this purchase.
EDIT: Updated with some new photos of the seeds sprouting.
I am not worried about any moisture getting to these seeds, anyway. I carefully removed the tape and lid, and was pleased to find 20 well-packaged seed packets. The packaging says the packets are triple-layers, and seeing them, I believe it. My apologies for this upcoming brief area of review, but as I do not possess a ruler I am using imagination, such as indicating the packets are around 1-2" taller than seed packs you purchase at your local hardware store. Each packet is the length of my hand from the wrist to the tip of my middle finger (I'm a female, just shy of 5'9", fairly long hands/fingers).
The packets are clearly labeled and extremely sturdy. From top to bottom you find the type of seed, a photo of the grown food, the type it is (such as "Golden Bantam" type of corn), then directions on how to plant the seeds. Along the sides you see approximately how many you can expect will germinate, such as 94%; the date of packaging; grams; lot number; finally, their origin.
To top it off, there is a 1 1/2 page guide on planting and seed harvesting.
My family would like to add another to our gear as well. You simply can't go wrong with this seed vault.
