Arielle, the next time you want to save seeds from a tomato, be sure it's dead ripe, and then ferment the seeds. You squeeze the seeds out into a cup, and let them sit there for a while. The goo will separate out, and become very liquid. The seeds will sink to the bottom. You then rinse them well, dry them well, and store them. As long as the tomato was VERY RIPE, and the seeds were fermented, they should have good viability... unless they were not pollinated, or unless they were bred with suicide gene.
