Ok I am new to the tomato growing. This is my first year in a long time.

I ordered Hybrid & Heirloom seeds to plant this year. None were identified as F1.

I planted 24 varieties and a total of 44 plants.

I have bumble bees in my garden that go to the flowers on all of the varieties.

This is my question.

Will I get the same variety of tomato this year that I planted if they cross pollinate? If I save the seed and they did cross pollinate this year is that considered a F1 seed. If I have an F1 seed and plant next year will I get the original varieties or a mixed version. If I plant a lot of different tomatoes every year do I have to buy new seeds every year?
