Questions on Hybridizing Tomatoes and Peppers

Posted by heavenlyfarm pa (My Page) on

I have a few questions on hybridizing tomatoes and peppers. First, are the hybrid seeds you get from a catalog more likely to produce a higher percentage of seeds that will be near the same as the original? Are the seeds from catalogs F1 hybrids or F2+ hybrids?? About how many years would it take to get a strain that is almost or completely true from seed?
Thanks in advance,

RE: Questions on Hybridizing Tomatoes and Peppers

There is a nursery that specializes in dehyhybridizing hybrids . They found that the other nurseries just call some "hybrids " to discourge outgrowing of their seeds .
with strict in breeding and ridged culling, 2 seasons (years)maybe .
