F1 is the first generation cross of usually two very different parents, usually. But in general it is the first gen from the original parent stock.


F2 normally means the product of F1 x F1 but people very often mean the second generation, however I believe it technically means the product of F1 x F1.

Same goes for F3, F4, whatever.
