Mortgage Lifter is one of the most famous American heirloom tomatoes. It was developed in West VIrginia in the 1930’s, and it created such a stir with its giant fruit that its breeder was able to pay off the mortgage on his house in just a few years — hence the name.
These astonishing fruits weigh between 2? and 4 pounds apiece, with a mild yet meaty flavor that pleases every palate. Besides, they’re such fun to grow! Just make sure you support them well — they literally “outweigh” all others!
