|It is my understanding that a hybrid can produce seeds, but the seeds will result in a plant that may be different...a plant which can show characteristics of either of the two parent plants. So, seed saved from a Red Burgermeister/Burgermaster will grow an onion plant, but you won't know exactly which onion or it it will have good traits. The Red Burgermaster is a descendent of a cross between a Torpedo Red onion and a White Spanish onion somewhere on its family tree.
