Mortgage Lifter    Beefsteak / Red / 16-32 ounces / 80-90 days / Open Pollinated / Indeterminate


As its name indicates, a prolific family heirloom from 1940s Kentucky where, using the proceeds from its sale, “Radiator Charlie” Byles paid off his $6,000 home mortgage (those were the days!!) in just six years. Produces 1-2 pound big, red, very flavorful beefsteak tomatoes.  Plants are very productive, disease-resistant and long-bearing.  (“Just all around perfect tomatoes, no problems, good yield, medium-to-large fruits with that wonderful, old-fashioned tomato taste.”)
