Welcome to ShrubBucket!
This tomato's story starts in the 1940's when M.C. "Radiator Charlie" Byles from West Virginia set out to make the best tomato in the world. Old "Radiator Charlie" crossed (5) varieties of the largest fruiting tomatoes he could find, and, after a stringent selection of the resulting plants, he selected 'Mortgage Lifter'. It does seem like a crazy name for a Tomato until you realize Charlie had a dream to pay off his mortgage by selliing his monstous new 1 to 3 pound beefsteaks to everyone he knew! It was an easy sell because this pink colored beefsteak was so flavorful that people came from far and wide to buy 'em for a buck each enabling old Charlie to pay off his mortgage in 6 years! You might not be able to pay off your mortgage if you grow 'Mortgage Lifter' but you'll revel in the taste of this great slicer with few seeds and oh so much flavor! Late maturing (85 days).
