Tiny tomatoes --what do the seeds look like?

Hi there
I am curious, I am growing the spoon tomato, or worlds smallest. Has anyone ever grown this from seed? The seeds looked pretty much the same to me as larger varieties. I was kind of thinking that they were going to be really tiny seeds?

Spoon is the name that Park's Seeds gave to it many years ago, but it's really just a red currant tomato, which is a different species of tomato than our garden varieties.

I've grown Spoon and many other currants and for me they've always had very tiny seeds.

Right now I'm listing Sara's Galapagos in the SSE YEarbook and it's probably not a true current but a stable interspecies hybrid originally, but now OP, and the seeds are tiny indeed.
