Default How to save Tzimbalo seeds??

Has anybody grown this fruit before? Any idea how to save seeds? I just wondered if they needed fermenting or not?

Solanum caripense is the formal name of this plant. i just had a seed sprout (yeah!) They are small like ground cherry seeds. A teeny, tiny plant...

I grew them a few years ago and from memory, I whizzed some ripe fruit in a liquidiser a third full of water for a few seconds to release the seeds and then saved a bit of juice for them to ferment in. The fruits seemed to take ages to ripen, interesting taste, must admit I've not grown them again.
