Telling if a seed is Hybrid or not?

I ordered seeds from a supply company and they sent me an extra pack of Sprite tomato seeds. Does anyone happen to know if they are OP or hybrid?

They are OP. TGS Co. is very good at listing when plants are hybrid. Good catalogs will either say hybrid or F1 (F1 is a short way of saying hybrid) after the name. Nothing after the name means OP.

Thanks Remy! I didn't know that when nothing is listed it generally means OP.
