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 I hear gardeners say this about their cucumbers, tomatoes, squash, and rhubarb the most, but in more recent weather in the south of me, actually figs and peaches, also plums and apples (though these are tree products).
