Is there any list of absurdly productive food plants? Like if you only have x amount of space or can only by y number of plants, what do you grow to produce the largest raw mass of food possible

So zucchini is the prototypical example, right. And I know of a few others, like tabasco peppers for example

Tell me in the replies, what plants do you know of that make gardeners say "help, I have more x than I know how to deal with, can anyone come take some home?"

Also, lmk any other tips you have for increasing yields, even if they're not this specifically. For instance, growing a leafy green that you can harvest one leaf at a time like kale or romaine lettuce, rather than one that you take all at once like cabbage. Stuff like that

I'm planning a guerilla community garden and I want it to do as much good as possible


@socalledunitedstates Potato barrels are the best way to get a big yield of potatoes in a small space, but a mess to harvest.
