If you like to grow beans, you can get seeds for about 13 diff kinds in a bag of "15 bean soup." Sold with the dry beans. The lentils & peas are split, so I don't know if they can sprout (so that's why I said "about 13 kinds"...)

I agree totally.
Buy something, grow it, select the best, let it go to seed, wait wait wait, collect, dry dry dry, split, label.
Then try to trade "some kinda Brassica, probably". Embrassing.
But you can always grow out multiple NO-ID varieties and let them cross. Select them for a few years, select hard. Then call them "DogsNDaylilies Michigan Landrace".

>> I started hybridizing this year and knowing cultivars is important to the basic genetics aspect of hybridizing.
Totally! A sine qua non. (*)
