I saw a How-to guide on how to cross-breed different breeds of tomatoes. Could I cross breed tomatoes with watermelons? Please tell me what you think. I think they would taste pretty good. I only have one more question. Can you cross breed tomatoes with hot peppers such as Jalapeno or cayenne?

Don't think it works that way. Different families, besides the tomato/watermelon cross would need a whole loaf of bread, a whole slab of bacon, a whole head of lettuce, along with a large jar of mayo to get a BLT.

cross the tomato and bacon with the mayo, and all you'd need is a big hunka bread, IMO!
