There are some non-hybrid seed companies that make claims that the seeds will store for 20-100 years but this is only under optimal conditions with a decreased fertility rate over time. Preparedness Seeds claim that their seeds will keep AT LEAST 4-5 years on a shelf at 70 degrees and 10+ years if kept refrigerated or frozen.
The reason that the seeds need to be sealed is not to keep the oxygen out (it actually needs a little to stay viable) but to keep the moisture out. Inside of the #10 can, each variety is hermetically sealed in a mylar bag that also has a zip lock seal - kind of like the items that you get at the store that have a top section that you tear off leaving the zip lock seal at the top that can be resealed. This way a person can open the can and plant only a few varieties without effecting the shelf life of the ones that weren't opened.
Included with each can are complete planting and harvesting instructions.
