The Mortgage Lifter Heirloom tomatoes are huge tomatoes. They are Non-GMO and packed full of real tomato flavor. The Mortgage Lifter tomato came to life in West Virginia in the late 1930s. An old homesteader developed a huge beefsteak tomato and sold transplants. He had his mortgage paid off in six years by breeding this strain of Heirloom, open-pollinated tomato. These get 2 to 4 pounds with a pound to a pound-and-a-half average. Start these indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost, and you can start picking them in about 85 days. They will keep on coming until the frost kills them. Happy growing!!!
The Mortgage Lifter Heirloom Tomato is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
