I've purchased quite a few seeds this year and started all my
vegetables and annuals from scratch. Much of these varieties are
hybrid type, especially the plants for hanging baskets. My question is
what will result if I cultivate seed from these hybrid plants to use
for next years crop??? Sure would be nice if it will work since I
spent about $150.00 in seed this year...thanks
Hybrids revert to previous generations and you will lose some of the
good traits. It hard to rip out volunteer tomatoes but whenever I keep
them, the results are usually very acidic and sometimes there is too
much pulp, etc.
I think the claim of sterility for all F1's is in line with Monstanto's
claim that the bioengineered corn with insect repelling genes was sterile -
now found interbreeding all over the place.......and ladies, don't EVER
sleep with a man who claims he is sterile without using protection...LOL
