How to Save Tomato Seeds
Follow these five easy steps and you’ll be on your way to saving your own tomato seeds!
First, slice a tomato in half and crush its pulp and seeds into a jar.
Wait for the pulp and seeds to ferment.
After three days, the mixture will have a white film on top. Rinse and drain off the pulp. Seeds will sink to the bottom.
Rinse seeds with water repeatedly until the seeds are clean.
Spread seeds out to dry in a clean, dry place with a gentle breeze.
