You got some good advice from Don which I will back up with my own
experience: I've been growing heirloom tomatoes staked about 50cm (~20")
apart for about 20 years with no problems saving seeds from 4 or 5
But last year my prized "banana legs" yellow-with-green-streaks processing
tomato hybridized with some other variety. The resulting seeds germinated
nicely, but dont produce fruit that I like.
So...... If you really want to keep pure seed from from a specific variety,
then you need to isolate them like Don said.
