|Tomato Introduction||Cultivation Instructions||Seed Saving Instructions|
|Originally domesticated in the Andean region of South America, the modern cultural and nutritional importance of tomatoes worldwide is difficult to exaggerate.||In the spring, plant seeds directly in the garden 1/4 inch deep, or start indoors and transplant. Allow 15 inches between plants.||Flowers are both insect and self-pollinated, and varieties can cross. To remove seeds, puree ripe fruit with water in blender. Pulp will rise and seeds will sink.|
