How to Save Heirloom Tomato Seeds

29,749 Views
Saving heirloom tomato seeds brings back those memories of science classes. The seeds can't be just scooped out and dried, they need to be removed with all the slimy tomato guts and left to ferment. A little gross factor and lots of fun makes this a great project to do with kids.

    What is the story for bell peppers. Will they grow if you just plant the seeds or is there a certain way they have to be stored.

    Marlin, Peppers are much easier. Choose ripe fruit to ensure the seeds have matured, then scrape the seeds onto a plate and let dry. Store in paper packets or plant them.
