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!

What are the pros? lots of tomatoes

What are the cons? bug magnet, rots

Review:

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

What are the pros? Large, meaty and strong.

What are the cons? None

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.

What are the pros? huge meaty and tasty fruit

What are the cons? can split

Review:

These are our all time favorite tomato to grow so far of all the heirloom varieties we've tried. We've gotten fruit over 2.5 pounds and the size of small pumpkins. They are juicy AND meaty, so we've found they can excellently and I got tons of compliments on my tomato sauce using these. Just parboil the skins off and cut into chunks to fit into your jar. They are also excellent raw. Towards the end of the summer when they get huge, we pick them off before they ripen or they will split.

What are the pros? Does it all

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This variety produced the biggest tomatoes I have ever grown. Meat was firm and juicy, never left soggy bread making tomato sandwiches. Made wonderful sauce and canned great. Also produced a ton of tomatoes, poor plant was snapping stakes under the weight of all these monsters. Actually had 1 plant split itself in half under the weight - and it lived and kept producing.
