If a cultivar makes seedpods i.e. is
>> self-fertile, then obviously you can use it as pollen or female parent.

I should have added that just because a pellie is self-fertile doesn't
guarantee it will cross with all [fertile] pellies.  It also depends on the
chromosome count.  If a pellie is polyploid it is usually not cross-fertile
with a 'normal' plant
but will only produce viable seeds with another plant carrying the same
number of chromosomes.
