Lycopersicon Lycopersicum
Mortgage Lifter

Said to have prevented bankruptcy. In the 1930's, a guy nicknamed Radiator Charlie was in tough financial shape. He crossed heirloom tomatoes German Johnson, Beefsteak and several others, finally getting this terrific variety. He named it Mortgage Lifter because he made enough money selling fruits and plants of this huge, meaty, sweet, pink skinned tomato to get out of hock and pay off his mortgage. Indeterminate. 80 days. 1 unit is 4 plants.
