I am high school student who is developing his final school project, I've decided to work on plant hybrids. I have researched some media and I have found that Tomatillo (Physalys philadelphica) and Peruvian Groundcherry (Peruvian Groundcherry) are both members of the same genus and because of that I am interested in manually cross-pollinating the two in order to create a hybrid. I am just a bit worried because I do not know whether it will produce a hybrid, and if it fails, I won't have enough time to work out another cross.

So, is it feasible for these two plant species (Which i believe have the same number of chromosomes) could produce a hybrid?
