Wide (Interspecific and Intergeneric) hybridization is an important research approach for developing useful variability for breeding populations in crop. Desirable traits like resistance against pathogens or abiotic stress within varying environments, composition of metabolites or morphological traits and their responsible genes are often found only within wild species (treasure of valuable genes), related species and genera of the cultivars but these are lacking in cultivated species mostly. So, wide hybridization helps in gathering all desirable traits in one species or nucleus. However, there are several problems associated with distant hybridization, but by overcoming those problems it is possible to generate useful hybrids.

Key words: Hybridization, Distant, Fruit crops
