Survival Seed Bank
, a seed vault by Solutions from Science company is probably the best known survival seed bank on the market. This Illinois based company sells a range of survival gear equipment, food & supplies, solar power generators as well as fertilizer and vegetable seeds. Even though they are not just a seed company, their Survival Seed Bank is one of the bestsellers among all survival vaults.

Survival Seed Bank comes in the shape of a indestructible plastic cylinder. Inside the container there are 22 special foil packets containing different open pollinated heirloom seeds. Seed bank contains some 30,000 seeds in total which is a fair amount and chosen varieties are very good. This product contains a lot of staple vegetables like corn, beans, cabbage, carrots, peas, squash and eggplant. In fact, there are three varieties of beans, two types of corn and two varieties of peppers.

There are only a few vegetables that I don’t consider “real food” meaning you can’t make a hole meal using just that one vegetable, like two types of lettuce, spinach, radish, onions and cucumber. Still, you need onions, and spinach and lettuce add a touch of variety to the meals so they are welcomed to the mix. I would like to see at least one or two more varieties of tomatoes, but other than that it’s a fair choice.

Solutions from Science currently offers just one size of their Survival Seed Bank priced at $149 which is in the upper part of price range, but well worth the money. Here is the complete list of all heirloom vegetable seeds in this seed vault:

1) October Bean
2) Black Valentine Bean, Stringless
3)Bountiful Bea
4)Detroit Dark Red Beet
5)Copenhagen Market Cabbage
6) Stowell’s Evergreen Corn
7) Reid’s Yellow Dent Corn
8) Bushy Cucumber
9) Yellow Of Parma Onion
10) Bloomsdale Spinach
11) Scarlet Nantez Carrot
12) Red Salad Bowl Lettuce
13) Oakleaf Lettuce
14) Hale’s Best Melon
15) Green Arrow Pea
16) Fordhook Giant Chard
17) Brandywine Tomato
18) California Wonder Pepper
19) Early Jalapeno Pepper
20) French Breakfast Radish
21) Waltham Butternut Squash
22) Rossa Bianca Eggplant

All the vegetable seeds from Survival Seed Bank are open pollinated non GMO seeds, which means you can harvest the seeds from this year’s garden and replant next year without the need to buy more seeds.

I opened the first Survival Seed Bank I ordered and decided to try the seed. I planted the seeds last spring and after about one week the seeds begun to sprout. And they sprouted amazingly well! I was extremely pleased with the germination rates, because I don’t think I ever before bought seeds with such a huge germination rate – almost 100%.

Not only that the seeds sprouted, the plants grew vigorously and produced an abundance of crops. I’ve started squash, peas, tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, eggplant, carrots, as well as peppers, chard and lettuce. What I love about Survival Seed Bank is that they have no GMO seeds, and judging by germination rate the seeds are obviously very fresh. Also love the practical cylindrical container which does not take up much space (for example, in refrigerator) and can be reused once it’s opened!
