Heirloom versus Hybrid seeds what is what?

Jim can you explain the diffrence between heirloom seeds and other

I am asking because my understanding is you can harvest seeds from
heirloom veggies and flowers to use the following year.

I saw the seeds in a can on the main site. Is there a company you can
suggest for individual plants.

TY :) Steve

Steve & Group:

Heirloom seeds will produce the same fruit generation after generation. Hybrid seeds will not.

Any of the seed companies that provide catalogs will have both hybrid and non-hybrid seeds in their catalogs. Ask for a catalog and just buy the non-hybrids, if you are more concerned about using the seeds than you are about size, productivity, health (resistance to disease, etc.), and flavor.
