I’m ready to buy seeds, but am needing to know if non-hybrid seeds are listed on the package. In other words, I am wanting to buy non hybrid. I see packages that are listed as organic, and some listed as hybrid. Then there are packages that say neither. Does that mean it is a non-hybrid seed? Thank you.

Typically if they are not marked, they are hybrid. Organic and non-hybrid are different, so a seed can be organic but hybrid too. You may want to buy seeds from companies that specialize in non-hybrid seeds, like rareseeds.com or seedsavers.org.
