Mortgage Lifter Tomato is a fantastic heirloom beefsteak type that has a devout following for its excellent true traditional home grown tomato flavor, almost seedless meaty flesh, pretty pink thin skin and voluminous size. Enjoy massive 20 oz fruits on sturdy, well set climbing vines that are well adapted to all climate zones. The story of its development is noteworthy, especially if you have been wondering about this interesting name. Mortgage Lifter was developed by M.C. Byles of Logan, West Virginia. After crossing his best varieties for 6 years and selecting the best of the crops, he introduced this variety that he named Mortgage Lifter in the 1940s, after he sold plants for $1 each and paid off the $6000 mortgage on his house through plant sales. A favorite heirloom of both home and fresh market growers, this variety never disappoints! 82 days. Packet: 40 seeds
