FAST GERMINATING
Reviewed By: Sylvester017 (Los Angeles County, CA)
I almost didn't get this seed packet but it was on sale and marked (VF) so thought I'd use the next growing season to compare Mortgage Lifter side by side with Beefsteak. I like help fighting diseases in the garden. I read that Beefsteak isn't as big or prolific as Mort Lift but if it fends off some diseases it will be ok with me. I'm already impressed with how fast the seeds germinated and how tall compared to the slow Mortg Lifter seeds.

Best ever
Reviewed By: Frank Pearson (Otsego, Michigan)
The best tomato ever. Huge dark red and meaty. They need staking as the yields are very heavy. One slice more than covers a slice of bread. I love them.

One of the BEST tomatoes!
Reviewed By: Danny (Beaverton, Oregon)
This tomato is one of the best I've grown. It has fairly sturdy plants, produces very heavy yields and produces tomatoes ranging from 1 pound to 2 1/2 pounds! I wasn't impressed with taste but, I wasn't disappointed. It the perfect tomato for sandwiches and burgers. I'm sure you won't be disappointed!
