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?"

@socalledunitedstates Other summer squashes are good. It's not exactly the same but blackberries will grow uncontrollably which is great if you want to eat a lot of blackberries with very little effort but not great if you want to do something else with your space and are trying to cut back the blackberries to do so.

@swedishfish It's going to be container gardening (in a sense), so spreading isn't much of an issue. And that reminds me, mint is another good candidate
