I usually grow vegetable plants from seeds, or sometimes I'll buy plants, depending on how decimated the garden gets after the groundhogs come through....


I would like to grow Kumato tomatoes, but seeds are not available. My kids love them.

I have removed the seeds from some Kumato tomatoes I bought. I strained them, and dried them on paper towels several times (no pulp left).

Can I attempt to start seedlings from them? I am planning on starting them in peat pots with organic starter mix. Will it work?


what did I ever do to deserve this?

Hey!

I'm going to try it...have some free time this week and figure why not!

I usually try to grow indeterminate hybrids as they produce for quite a while, bear lots of fruit, and hold up well. I don't generally go for heirlooms as I find them very difficult to grow and not very productive. Plus they seem to get diseases more often.


I know almost nothing about hybridization, but apparently some people are saying the offspring from the seeds from the actual tomato won't bear fruit like the tomatoes we ate.

And I'm still trying to figure out F1, F2 etc. This is my latest project.

For tomato seeds to grow, they need to be fermented. There is something that happens to the seed coating of the seeds when tomatoes fall to the ground and rot, and this is necessary for propagation. There are tutorials on line for imitating the process on your kitchen counter. If you don't ferment them, they won't propagate!
