Details

Mortgage Lifter' tomatoes were developed by Willam Estler of Barboursville, West Virginia in the 1920s. According to lore, the unique and extraordinary taste of these tomatoes proved to be such a success that Mr. Estler was able to pay off his home mortgage within a few years by selling plants of this variety. The plants are indeterminate growers, and come to maturity 75-85 days after transplanting. Mortgage Lifter tomatoes are known for their sweet, rich flavor and prodigious size, with the beefsteak tomatoes sometimes reaching 2 pounds!
