Question about crossing peppers

Hey everyone
I wanted to cross a Asian birds eye and a jalape�o, and after doing some research, I found that a crossing table says that frutescens x annuum will result in 'normal germination'.
Does anyone know what's the difference between this and say, highly fertile?

Btw, the crossing table is from fatalii.net

Interesting site. Reminds me not to be proud of how big my plant had gotten... (Btw, what language is that? Looks vaguely Nordic.)

... in Finland ?!?

Finnish: "taste the quality of domestic"

As to the original question, I don't see that "normal germination" speaks to fertility at all. The two descriptions appear to be orthogonal.

well maybe it means 'f1 is sterile'?

many other crossing tables say that it crosses sporadically.
has anyone ever crossed a birds eye and a jalapeno before?

Howdy,
I have a question. Guysensei1 mentioned a crossing table. Where can I find that? Sounds both interesting and very useful.

The table that edymnion posted also has 'normal germination' listed.
Has any cross ever been made of the species listed as 'NG'?

Yes. I means that the resulting hybrid seeds germinated normally. Contrast that to IV, or "inviable", where the cross produced seeds, but the seeds did not germinate.

The chart is obviously from a paper describing experiments. It would be nice to see the original paper. As I say above, the entries seem to be describing different things about the crosses.
