Due to life circumstances, I am only able to get to my garden about once weekly. So, I plan to pick tomatoes that show any significant color, and bring them home to ripen on my kitchen counter.
My question is re seed saving from fruits ripened off the vine. Do the seeds continue to develop fully, similar to the color and flavor of the fruit? I participate in seed trading, and don't want to send seeds to other participants that are not viable. Does anyone know, or have experience? Currently, I save seeds from the ripest (sometimes toward rotten, or bug eaten) fruits, when possible. I just wonder how to proceed as summer progresses. Any thoughts?
