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!
