Hello everyone, Im new to the whole hybridizing thing, but i've always been interested in it. I have 2 quick questions to ask you pros out there.

1. Can I hybridize fruits or vegetables successfully? (I want to try hybridizing edible fruits)

2. How do you actually DO it? Is there a special technique to placing pollen and such?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Yes, Ace, you can hybridize fruit successfully.
You put the pollen on the stigma and grow out the resulting seeds. Any more inormation than that has to be tailored to the kind of fruit you want to hybridize. Some are easy, some a little harder.
Give us more information and we'll give you more information.
