How to Save Heirloom Tomato Seeds

28K 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.

    I have been saving seeds from all my vegetables including heirloom tomatoes for twenty years and I just rinse them well and dry for 2 weeks. I always get at least 99% germination.

    These are the prettiest photos about saving tomato seeds that I've ever seen! I like how the jars are labelled on top using the paper towel...very clever. Thanks for sharing :)
