hybrid

I.
Offspring produced by combining genetically different parents. Hybrid corn is the classic example, in which two varieties are cross pollinated to produce a third, which has more favored qualities. Don't confuse hybridization with biotechnology, genetic engineering, etc. Hybridization has created plants that are higher yielding, more resistant to disease and that produce more desirable food or fiber.
II.
The offspring of two animals or plants of different breeds, varieties, species, or genera (especially as produced through human manipulation for specific genetic characteristics).
