How to get tomato seeds

After planting my own, I’ve been in the lookout to learn how to correctly retrieve seeds for the next season.

It is in Spanish but here’s the summary:

  1. Pick the best tomato from the first harvest. Make sure it is from a strong plant not prone to decease. You want to keep the better one.
  2. Mark the chosen tomato so you don’t harvest it too early.
  3. The marked tomato needs to be left in the vine until is really ripe.
  4. Extract the seeds and let them ferment for 4 days so the membranes let them lose.
  5. Filter the fermented mix to get the seeds.
  6. Let them dry 4-5 days.
  7. Categorize and store the seeds in a dry place not exposed to extreme temperatures.
