PLANT IT EVERY YEAR
Reviewed By: Sylvester017 (Los Angeles County, CA)
This is a prolific tomato. The taste is ordinary to me but the plant gives so much fruit I'm freezer canning sauce for several weeks. I don't like the lumpy shapes of some of the fruit. I also get a variety of colors. One fruit was striped, one was yellow, one was red, one had green shoulders. A real fun plant. First year I only got half-pound tomatoes. Second year I got up to pound-and-a-half. Still never had a 2-pounder but that's ok. Just be aware that sometimes fruit is very lumpy-shaped. The fruit has a LOT of gel and seeds and is very juicy when sliced. Not the best for canning but I had to do something with all the fruit!

Very nice tomatoes, some grew in odd shapes, looking more like pumpkins or like 2 tomatoes merged to one. but i got a few over 2 pounds.

Excellent Tomato
Reviewed By: Bob Kroger (Cincinnati, OH)
This is an excellent tomato! I planted 6 of these plants this year and I have never had such a large harvest. I used Fertilome's Rooting and Blooming on this plant and they grew 8 feet tall and produced tomato well into late October. They made excellent tomato sauce. I am definately ordering these for the 2012 season.

Vigorous
Reviewed By: BRC (Tahlequah, OK)
This is my first year growing tomatoes and these really performed for me. Most people in my county had few or no tomatoes this year. My Mortgage Lifters not only produced abundant fruit, they are still setting fruit at the end of September on vines that are 9' tall! Best yet: the tomatoes are outrageously yummy!
