Stored well, they can keep for hundreds of years.

I have some heirloom seed that was discovered in Native American (Anasazi?) pottery, cultivated and brought back to market after being stored for hundreds of years.
Germination rate decreases each year, but seeds can be viable for a long, long time.
And for the record, I had a premonition-like dream that when things go badly, heirloom seed will be more desirable than silver or gold as barter currency. Take it or leave it.
Food or metal? Food first, but start buying a little metal too. If you have $100, buy one ounce of silver and the rest in staples.
Things that keep forever and will be like currency:
Green coffee beans
Honey
Chocolate

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
