This page talks about how to buy Doomsday Hybrid Seeds from David's Garden Seeds.
We do not usually talk about doomsday hybrids since you can only get one growing season out of them. But hybrids may come in handy as you get the open pollinates to start producing.
Hybrids are usually more productive, more disease resistant and usually easier to grow. But you cannot use them for reproducing seeds since they are bred by combining the best characteristics of several types. They are not GMO seeds though.
I am going to keep this in line with the regular doomsday pages.
Beans: There are no hybrid bean seeds that I can find.
Precision sowing saves thinning. A typical beet seed can contain 2 to 3
embryos, which results in clumping. Monogerm beet seeds contain only one
embryo. This feature eliminates thinning and results in superior
uniformity. They grow smooth, deeply colored roots with medium-tall greens. A pack of 200 beets should produce at least 180 beets.
Harvest in 46 days.
