Hybrid tomato seed collection
« on: September 08, 2012, 22:53 »
Hi all you seed collectors.

I have a mini plum tomato plant that appeared in one of my seed trays - obviously from a bird or from my compost bin... I dont know where it came from.

It has grown really well and has really tasty mini plum toms on.. If it is a hybrid plant of sorts and I keep the seed will it grow the same again from collected seed?

Now a member of the 10 Ton club.... 2013  harvested 588 Kg from 165 sq mt..

If it is, or grew from, a crosspollinated plant then no it won't come true from seed  :(

Thanks mum... I also just realised that it may just be a common tom as it must have come from a seed that we ate or something... so it should work If I keep seed...

do you not grow hybrid tomatoes, or buy them from the supermarkets?

Just wondered why you are so sure that it didn't grow from a hybrid seed- that's all  :unsure:
