Mortgage Lifter tomato is a moderate to high producer of large, reddish-pink beefsteaks that weigh about one pound. The flavor is mild and balanced. This heirloom tomato is famous for its story:
In the 1940's, a man in West Virginia named Charlie Byles, nicknamed Radiator Charlie, developed Mortgage Lifter tomato by crossing four other large-fruited tomatoes. He sold the resulting plants for $1 each and paid off his $6,000 mortgage in six years.
