Anyway to start studying Good genectic books about hybridizing
« on: September 30, 2020, 06:49:17 AM »
What books or web sites could one read to learn about how to spot recessive genes in new hybrids
 genes in general back crossing .

I understand some of it, but it isn't From learning A guide A to Z that is what I am looking for
Sick of getting bits, and pieces here, and there.
IS there any good books I prefer books ?
as the PC is not easy on the eyes, but will gladly take web sites as well,
(and others would be interested as well down the line)


I mostly come here to read about the hybrids
seems like this board knows most about genetics
which most interest me here (recessive genes back crossing etc.)
may start to grow some just to learn
(I have grown flying dragon Pocirus trifoliate, and grocery store stuff for fun nothing special.)

I killed a lot of seeds as well by purpose when didn't want to deal with them
interesting seeing how long a bunch of lemon seeds can go without water
(or interesting seeing a Mistake (neglect vacation), and how some survive others stick in there in same pot.)

would like to learn the best organized way to take notes on that stuff as well
I should remind you this information might be used for other types of plants
(not nucellar seeds citrus etc., but am welcome to that as well as love all plants just do no have room for breeding citrus inside. )

I know this much , but still nota A to Z guide book
Still having problems piecing together it all
if I do start growing out many seeds of crosses
(I did 500, of open pollinated seeds already ,(in one batch)
 but my other seeds didn't sprout in that batch my fault I know better bad soil)

Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties: The Gardener's and Farmer's Guide to Plant Breeding and Seed Saving
by Carol Deppe. This might be a good place to start. It covers a lot of plant species, and has some info on tricks to allow distant species crosses.
