This page talks about how to buy Doomsday Asian Greens seeds from David's Garden Seeds®.
It gives information on how many plants it would take to provide a daily intake of 1200 calories for one person for one year, assuming this is all you have to eat.
There are about 20 calories in a cup of greens. On a 1200 calorie daily diet, this would be 60 cups of greens. It would not be feasible to try to live on 60 cups of Asian Greens.
would be best to plant a few for variety. You can store them by canning
but I do not think they would taste very good. You can sun-dry them.
Unless I have half a bottle of salad dressing to put on them, I tend to
stay away from greens.
I would just grow a few to eat fresh.
But whatever you do, do it with-in 24 hours. After this they will start
to wilt and not be as good.
If you are raising rabbits, you can feed any type of green to them. You can also feed them to your chickens and swine if you are lucky enough to have them.
Horses and cattle will also eat greens but you would have to have a lot for them.
Goats will eat them (and just about anything else). It may be feasible to have a few goats around to breed, eat or trade.
Here in San Antonio, they can be grown year round except for the hot part of the season. They do not like the hot temperatures we have here.
Some Asian greens will continue to grow after they have been cut so they will keep producing for a long time.
We don't recommend trying to live off greens alone but they do help add flavor.
The Asian greens we recommend for growing are below:
Asian Greens Mizuna 1000 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Mizuna Asian Greens have broad leaves that make for easy bunching. Similar to standard mizuna, but the attractive, finely-divided leaves are bulkier and less deeply cut. Grows well in warm and cool conditions. Mild flavor. Harvest in about 21 days baby or 40 for full maturity.
Asian Greens Tatsoi 1000 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Tatsoi is a standard salad mix ingredient. Its leaves form a compact, thick rosette. This plant has a long harvest period and a mild taste for salads, stir-fries, etc. Thin to six to eight inches apart for full-sized rosettes. It is unique and easy to grow.
NOTE: This plant is suitable for late spring through autumn sowing. Spring sowings should be made after last frost date to eliminate risk of premature bolting. Harvest in about 21(baby leaf) to 40 days to mature size.

All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to
maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific
locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and
nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in
your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
