newbie basic question

suburbangreen(8)June 13, 2007

I'm a first year gardener and want to save my seeds from my veggie garden. I've researched the basic process for saving tom seeds. And with Gweb and the internet I'm sure I can find the process for saving other veggie seeds.

What I want to know is---are there some seeds that might be sterile?

I planted my garden with basic storebought hybrid varities, like Juliet toms, bhn 444 toms and early prolific staightneck squash. Will these even have seeds? And if they do and I save them, will they produce next year?

Thanks for answering this basic question,

Pete

Seed from Hybrid plants don't usually come true to the parent plant. If you want to save seed, I'd recommend buying non-hybrid seed. However sometimes it's fun to try the seed just to see what comes from them.
