Though an essential part of all emergency prep pantries, grains and freeze-dried foods get old very quickly – especially for children. With this Heirloom Fruit Seed Bucket from preparedness gurus The Wise Company, you can enjoy the sweet flavor and vital nutrients of fresh fruit, even in the worst of times. Each Mini-Ropak bucket contains nine fruit garden varieties designed to help you stay healthy and sane, even if the world around you is crumbling. There’s enough seeds here to eat in a season with some left over so you can jar your own jams or preserves. Since all the fruit in this preparedness kit are non-hybrid, open-pollinated varieties, seeds may be harvested at the end of each growing season and then used for the next year’s planting – a critical endless cycle of flavor and nutrients. The nine resealable seed packets are enclosed in an airproof, waterproof bucket and will keep up to four years if stored at 66 to 70 degrees and much longer if stored colder. The Wise Fruit Seed Bucket is a must-have source of vital nutrients and calories for every emergency food storage pantry. It also makes a perfect gift for gardeners or anyone who loves fresh fruit. Comes with Quick-Start Grow Guide.
