ABSTRACT The growth characteristics and morphological features of the Atlantic bay scallop (Argopecten irradians irradians Lamarck), Chilean scallop (Argopecten purpuratus Lamarck), F1 hybrids of these species, and the offspring produced via 2 cycles of backcrossing between hybrid populations and the Atlantic bay scallop were examined to determine the feasibility of broadening the genetic basis of the bay scallop.
For example, "Arbason F1 Hybrid, FW (races 0, 1), VW, TMV" means that this tomato has resistance to fusarium will races 0 and 1, verticillium wilt and tomato mosaic virus.
F1 hybrids are bred from carefully selected parents proven to replicate in their progeny the most desirable characteristics.
However, some seeds, especially those labelled on the packet as F1 or F1 hybrid, will form plants that go on to produce much more variable offspring that are often quite different from the original plant.
Already in flower is Pansy "Karma Blue Butterfly" F1 Hybrid, and these plants, too, have transplanted so well without looking back.
Good varieties include Red Drumhead, which produces solid, dark red heads, and Ruby Ball, an F1 hybrid you can cut in late summer.
Seeds from the F1 hybrid cross were started in a greenhouse, transplanted at seedling stage, and at 12 weeks they were distributed to volunteers in the surrounding community to be planted in backyard gardens.
10 Save seed from plants around the garden, but don't bother with those with F1 hybrid in their name - they rarely produce seed that germinates and comes true to form.
NEW YORK, April 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- About Hybrid Seeds A hybrid seed or F1 or F1 hybrid is a first generation seed, which is produced by controlled cross pollination between different varieties of the same plant.
The Championship-winning MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 W05 F1 Hybrid car, raced by the team in 2014, was over 30% more fuel efficient than its predecessor and has also delivered real-world benefits in the S 500 Hybrid Plug In and other Mercedes-Benz road cars.
This year I promise to give them a much better chance of success by sowing before the end of April and using an F1 hybrid seed that has extra vigour.
