This is our Doomsday Watermelon page. It gives instructions on how many watermelon plants are needed to feed one person for a year.
Watermelons have about 50 calories per cup. On a 1200 calorie diet, that is about 24 cups per day. You can get about three cups of watermelon from one. That is about 1095 watermelons a year. You would need about 1200 for eating, seed production and trading. Figure about 3 watermelons on average for each plant. This means you would need 400 watermelon plants per year per person.
Watermelon will last about 7 days unrefrigerated. It can be dried and the watermelon rind can be pickled.
