Each year when I plant this tomato I think of Radiator Charlie, the developer of this tomato. The owner of a radiator repair shop in the 1930s Charlie was facing bankruptcy. He had no plant breeding experience, yet he cross-bred 4 Varieties to develop this big, tasty tomato, sold 1000 plants at $1 each over six years and paid off his mortgage. Fruits of Mortgage Lifter can average 2-1/2 Lbs. and may reach 4lbs when grown well. Plants are very productive and disease-resistant, and continue to bear until frost. These large, slightly flattened, pink-red tomatoes are meaty and flavorful with few seeds.
