85 days. Large, smooth, 1-lb pink fruits have a delicious, rich, sweet taste. This variety has become very popular in recent years and was 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 1940s, after he sold plants for $1 each and paid off the $6000 mortgage on his house.

What are the pros? Delicious true tomnato taste

Review:

I've been trying to grow these for 4 years in my zone 6b Western NY garden. They are very susceptible to growing conditions but the end product is worth the effort. I plant about 15 different heirloom varities every year but only 1 or 2 plants of each. The first 3 years I had no luck with these tomatoes producing because growing conditons weren't perfect. I had plants and no tomatoes while other varities produced. This year it was a good year weatherwise and I finally got to taste a Mortgage lifter. It was well worth my perseverance. I'm planting more plants next year. Perfect texture and taste.

What are the pros? Nice taste, early producer

Review:

Planted this is as a nursery start in early May. First two weeks it didn't do much. Fertilized it and it started growing overnight. I harvested the first tomato in early June. There were small cracks at the stem; it was a light rose in color and about average for a supermarket tomato. It was overripe but delicious. It is now late June, and I have three small tomatoes growing and as the blossoms die off - I expect about 20 more. At this point, Mortgage Lifter is the only tomato producing out of the six varieties I planted. Will definitely replant next year (remember of course to give it more room).

Review:

This tomato has become my family's new favorite. We grow Cherokee Purple, Pineapple and a few cherry varieties, and Cherokee Purple has been the favorite for the past few years. We tried Mortgage Lifter for the first time this year and they were beautiful plants, producing first and last among our slicers. And the taste was wonderful, old fashioned tomato flavor. We will definitely be growing more of these in the years to come!

What are the pros? Fast grower, heavy fruiter

Review:

I have never had luck with tomatoes, especially slicers. So I wasn't expecting much from these. Boy was I wrong! They grew huge, even in containers, and produced like crazy all season. I was sorry to see the stems start to die back a few weeks ago ... it has been my summer meal go-to since July.
