Are all O/T's sterile?

I don't think so. There's plenty of OT seed in the NALS seed exchange! Someone with more experience could probably give you a more in depth answer.

The short answer is no. Some are very fertile. Especially the tetraploids. Wide crosses from the first generation are usually not very fertile but some are converted to tetraploid, or pollinated by a tetra and can get seeds.
