Why Hybrids?

Trying to decide between growing heirlooms or hybrids? Well, there are several reasons to consider hybrid seeds:
  • A hybrid is produced by breeding at least two different plant varieties to create a "new and improved" version.
  • A hybrid may offer better yields, improved disease resistance, smaller sizes, etc... than an heirloom.
  • A hybrid can be easier to grow for some gardeners. For those who don't save seeds, hybrids can be a good option.
  • A hybrid is typically easier to find in your gardening center than more unusual heirloom plants.
