Zombie Lane crops have been a sticking point for many players, especially the Super Crop which seems like a huge under-performer. But if you look at the stats we see a different picture…
per hour profit:
Strawberries = 180 coins per hour
Radishes = 80 coins per hour
Watermelon = 20 coins per hour
Corn = 25 coins per hour
Onions = 13.33 coins per hour
Bell Peppers = 22 coins per hour
Carrots = 10.83 coins per hour
Pumpkins = 8.96 coins per hour
Beans = 8.54 coins per hour
Cabbage = 7.64 coins per hour
Super crop = 35
Trees = 40 coins per hour*
*after recovering initial $600 cost (15 harvests)
Now obviously you're not going to harvest the strawberries so efficiently as to get 180 coins in one hour since you take time to harvest and replant but you can get a huge coin influx if you plant a large number all at once. Plus you can't harvest all the time so some crops are going to be idle overnight while others will still be growing while you're sleeping (or working).
So if you're looking for straight coin revenue, trees seem like the best investment since they don't wither. Strawberries are good for quick coins but require a lot of labor (radishes, too). After that, corn, bell peppers and super crops are your best investment. You just need to figure out which crop fits your schedule.

I haven't bothered posting since Thanksgiving, but I'll go post some now. Thanks! But Adam (and anyone else) if you haven't done the car thing yourself yet and clicking to give me will deplete your supply, you might be better off saving them…I haven't worked out if giving in ZL actually takes stuff out of your own stash or not.
Giving things does take it out of your stash if you send it in-game, but if you send things from the stream request it doesn't. I might have some extra car bits, I just sent you a neighbour request =)
I'm on the very last quest (Hope V), kinda sitting there drawing out the last 100k of the 1.5m goal. That car did take ages to finish though.
FYI: A 'cheat' of sorts to make this pain in the ass mission go faster:
If you know someone who is online at the same time as you, you can post any number of those "GIMME PARTS" requests to them. (Do it by name, so you don't spam the hell out of your list.)
They can "CTRL-Click" on all of them, to open it in a new tab. Each tab will give them 5XP and you a part. It doesn't load the game, just the image of Rob saying "Here's your free gift!"
It totally works. And they get 5XP for each link they click.
+Adam Hayek and +Mike Kitchenman despite being in my ZL circle, it seems we never actually became neighbors. I sent a request.
+Luke Shiras I bet we've passed about 100 invites between us over the last couple months. They just don't stick. I sent you one too again today. The one I just got from you fizzled.
Yeah I never got Justina's request. It took forever for another friend and I to finally get it working. Doesn't help when I see most people as Null most of the time too.
Have they rolled out "new content" yet? "Next week" announcement has been up for 2+ weeks now :)
That's about how long the 48 hour gun sale lasted. So in ZL time next week means late January…
I hope they fix the gift giving. I only have like 23 of my 300 neighbors show up in-game and sending via G+ Game Companion doesn't actually work (gifts are duds).
