Mortgage Lifter Tomato

Mild, Meaty 4 Pounders

Originally developed in the 1930's by a gardener who successfully grew and sold enough of this tomato variety to pay off his mortgage! Mortgage Lifter is a huge heirloom beefsteak that puts out heavy yields of low-acid, pink fruits that are a constant taste test winner.
