Difference between a strain, a variety, & a cultivar?
Sorry for my ignorance, but what is the difference between these three? I assume a cultivar is just somehting that is growing, that you are 'cultivating'. But I thought strain and variety ment the same thing but on the tomato forum today there was a post that said
"refer to it as OTV Brandywine, not Brandywine (OTV) which indicates a strain, not a variety"
So obviously there is a difference, could someone explain this.
thank you very much
