Doomsday Cantaloupe


On a 1200 calorie diet, you would be need 20 cups of melon a day, if that is all you had to eat in a doomsday situation.

This is our Doomsday Cantaloupe page.  It gives instructions on how many cantaloupe plants are needed to feed one person for a year.

There are about 60 calories in a cup of cantaloupe.  On a 1200 calorie diet, this would be about 20 cups a day.  One cantaloupe will fill about three cups.  One plant will produce about 2 fruits.  This would mean ten plants per day or 360 plants per year.  Let's plan on 500 plants so we have some to trade and and some to make seed from.

500 plants will need about 2000 square feet to grow.

Cantaloupe will keep for 1 to  2 days unrefrigerated.  Cantaloupe can be cut and dried or dehydrated.  It will last up to one year dried. 

You will want to read up on how to dehydrate food naturally since in a doomsday event, there probably will not be any electricity.
