breeding Learning about saving hybrid seeds and creating my own variety

I have 4 F2 primeros red plants grown from seeds from some F1 parents last year. 3 of them have red fruit that is primarily smaller similar to habaneros, but red, and one has yellow fruit that is mostly larger fruit. I am wanting to keep selecting the best fruits and eventually having an open pollinated species that produces the same fruit with every seed. All 4 plants have some smaller fruit and some large robust ones. If I wanted to develop a plant that produced nice fruit every year, do seeds from the largest and best looking fruits carry the genes of that healthy fruit or of the plant that it came from?
