About Tomato, Other

These tomatoes are either F1 hybrids, bred for productivity and disease resistance, or are other recently created varieties. If you save seeds from hybrids, they will not produce the same kind of fruit. Open-pollinated varieties will "come true" from seeds that are saved properly.
