Gardening Hybrids
This 2008 photo shows Golden Bantam Sweet Corn in New Paltz, N.Y. These days, hybrids are either panned or praised in the world of gardening. Not that hybrids are such oddities. A hybrid is merely the offspring of two parents that are not genetically the same. The first artificial hybrids _ they were corn _ hit the market in the 1930s and have been big hits ever since.
