Silly question about hybrid seeds
Today I attended a wonderful program put on by master gardeners affiliated with the University of Maryland Extension. One of the things we covered is the fact that if you save seeds from a hybrid, the plant that grows from those seeds will typically be quite different from the hybrid plant that was the parent. So far so good. I suspect all of us know this.
But it raises a question . . . If you can't save the seeds from a hybrid, then where do the seeds come from to start hybrid plants from seed? Does anyone know?
Ironically, they then passed around free tomato seeds for everyone to plant. And the variety they gave us was the Sungold tomato, an F1 hybrid.
