AbstractF1 and F3 progeny of Chamaecrista fasciculata crosses of various parental distances (100 m to 2000 km) were examined for evidence of hybrid breakdown and hybrid vigor. Almost all F1s had greater fitness than parental genotypes, while F3 fitness was similar to parental genotypes. Outbreeding depression was observed in F3s when parental distances were greater than or equal to 1000 km.
