I know when you are starting out, this problem is confusing.  I would
suggest that you buy a "streaked seedling" from a good source( they are
offered by several folks including Chick at Bridgwiid Gardens.) We have
streaked Minuts F1 s for 35.00 these should make great parents.  The
main thing is for you to gradually devlope your own streaked parents,
that are produving "offspring" you like.  I think to start, it is more
important what you use for pollen parents, than what your streaked
parent is.  Some luck,in this, is also good!
