Often times seed packets contain more seed than the average home gardener can use in a season. Why not offer that surplus seed to others in the community? By choosing varieties that aren't already being offered you can help enlarge the plant diversity of our community.

Saving Tomato Seeds

The technique shown for saving tomato seeds can be applied to all juicy fruits where the seed is encased in a gelatinous substance, from cucumbers to passion fruits. Any seeds that are floating in the liquid after fermentation should be discarded as they are most likely not viable (won't germinate). Make sure you thoroughly dry the seed before storage to prevent rot. Seeds are best stored in a cool dry place.
