This page talks about Doomsday Bush Beans.  It gives nutrition information, how many to plant to eat and how many bean plants to plant for harvesting seeds.

One bush bean plant will produce about 1/2 pound of beans if all goes right.

1/4 pound of bush beans is about one cup.  One cup has about 44 calories.   So you would need about 30 cups of green beans per day to live.  This is about 8 pounds per day. 

You would need 16 plants per day for one person or 5900 plants per year.  This is just for eating. 

Remember, we are just hypothetically speaking here--hopefully there is more than green beans to eat.

One plant will produce about 100 seeds.  So you would need to plant 60 plants for next year's seeds and 60 plants as back up.

You would need to plant a total of 6100 plants, let's say 6200 should cover it. 

You can plant about 400 seeds in a raised bed that is 4 x 8 feet for 32 square feet.  It would take about ten of these to grow your green beans.

You would want to stagger your plantings so you are not harvesting all the green beans at once.  Hopefully you will have a way to can them and store them.  Green beans will last only a day or so if there is no refrigeration.

Bush beans cannot be dried and eaten like dry beans.  I guess you could try it, but they would not taste very good.

The bush green beans we recommend for ease of growing are the Provider and the Blue Lake.

For a yellow bush bean we recommend the Carson and the Topnotch.

For a purple bush bean we recommend the Amethyst and the Royal Burgundy.
