Mortgage Lifter Tomato

85 days. Large, smooth, 1-lb. pink fruit have a delicious, rich, sweet taste. This variety has become very popular in recent years, after being developed by M.C. Byles of Logan, West Virginia. After crossing varieties for 6 years and selecting the best, he introduced this beauty that he named Mortgage Lifter in the 1940's after he sold plants for $1 each and paid off the $6,000 mortgage on his house. See the article in the Spring 2003 issue of "The Heirloom Gardener" magazine!

Review:

Very productive, good tasting tomato. Good for eating or in sauce. Prolific plants. It's like 2 plants in 1 and produces more in volume than other heirlooms. Big. If you want to get the most out of a single tomato plant, this is an excellent choice.

Review:

Grew these for first time last year. Had back problems and they became root bound before i could get transplanted. Finally got them in the ground and they started slow but then took off. They grew crazy fast and set tomatoes very nicely. Had so many i was giving them to everyone i know. Had back surgery near end of season so they grew wild when i couldnt tend to them got so heavy and bushy that they were breaking stakes. Had tomatoes up til frost when they were still loaded down with greenies. Out produced everything in my garden. These will always have a permanent spot in my garden.

Out of 10 tomato plants of 5 different varieties, only Mortgage Lifter was a complete failure. Cracked, bottom turned black, bugs loved it and left all the others alone.

Review:

After trying many different types of tomatoes, the Mortgage Lifter is the only one I can honestly say I have to much of! I planted 6 plants, we've picked well over 300 ripe tomatoes and they are still going strong! We keep our family plus 5 more supplied in sweet fresh tomatoes with them. EVERYONE lives their flavor and low acidic level. BEST ever plants but really, it's time to stop them now! Lol

Review:

I've heard so many faults of Mortgage Lifter from other sites, claiming it wasn't a prolific producer or a reliable tomato plant. I disagree. I planted 6 seeds and 4 of the 6 germinated. Also, the plants are growing as good as any in my garden. And this is saying a great deal, since most of my plants are producing. After 6 weeks, all 4 plants have tomatoes growing and the plants are healthy and nice sized. I am satisfied with Mortgage Lifter and will try again next year. I highly recommend.
