Tomato Beefsteak Indeterminate Mortgage Lifter 25 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Mortgage Lifter was developed in the hills of West Virginia in the 1930’s by MC Byles, better known as “Radiator Charlie.” Byles tinkered with cars, farm equipment and tomatoes. Started working at the age of 4 picking cotton and never went to a day of school in his life – but he showed true American ingenuity and it shows in his Mortgage Lifter Tomato. This indeterminant plant produces good yields of 1 to 2 pound beefsteak tomatoes that have a sweet rich flavor and turn deep pink when mature. Harvest in about 70 days. Germination rate about 80% or better.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
