Behind a barbed-wire fence somewhere in Oregon, with guards and dogs and searchlights surrounding them. Oh, and they probably have a moat - full of sharks with laser beams attached to their heads.

I've bought a pound of whole from hops direct and been saving the seeds that found their way in the package. Going to try for a couple female plants.

Pretty much the only way I know how to get a plant.

Hah... It happens all the time with whole hop purchases. They are little tiny round balls, you have to really look for them.

Sure, those seeds *might be viable, but just what, exactly, will they turn into? It's a crap-shoot as to what you'll get.
Hops development takes years (decades) to produce acceptable/desirable results.
Organic material from fresh hops orders on the other hand...

Well, in all probability it would be the same plant, since theoretically they'd be surrounded by the same thing all over the place. Seeds likely formed from a hermie bit that poked out somewhere that nobody noticed. Probably from the same bine on the same plant.

It won't be a Citra thought. Whenever you grow from seed there is variation in the genetic code. All Citra plants are clones (from cutting). While your plants might not exactly be Citra, they will be something you can use to make beer and unique to the plants that you grow.

Yeah but wouldn't they be 99% Citra in all likelyhood?

If a single plant grows both male and female parts and pollenates itself (pretty common, actually), how would the seed have anything genetically different than the parent? (Serious question)

To my simple mind this seems no different than cutting a rhizome.

Maybe he'll end up with a better Citra - call it "Supra"!
