Answer: Some people prefer non-hybrid seeds because you can save the seeds for next year's garden and expect them to come back "true to seed". Non-hybrids also called "open pollinated" types also have an appeal as a link to the past, as many are heirloom varieties.
Hybrids will produce seeds that grow into plants unlike (and usually inferior to) the parent plant(s). The benefit of hybrids is that they often are more productive or possess other desirable qualities such as disease resistance.
