We can extract the tomato seeds from the tomato's we use at home for cooking, instead of buying seeds.

1.  Use a good healthy looking tomato.

2.  Scope off the seeds in a cup. I used a Britannia 200gms curd cup after enjoying the curd Smile

3.  Add around 2tbsps water to it.

4.  Cover with a tissue or cloth and secure with a rubber band.

5.  Let it stand in a cool place for a week. Check the water level sometimes, it must not dry out. I did it from Sunday to Sunday.

6.  Use a tea strainer to wash the seeds. Wash away all the pulp and fungus molds till only the seeds are seen.

7.  Spread the seeds on a tissue and leave to dry in shade for another week.

8.  Store in air tight containers or sow immediately. 1 tomato yields lots of seeds.
