TOMATO Beef Steak Mortgage Lifter - 20+ Heirloom Seeds 

The Tomato (Beefsteak) Mortgage Lifter Heirloom variety was named by a 1930's farmer whose bumper crop of this variety enabled him to save his farm from repossession. 

Mortgage Lifter is the name given to a cultivar of tomato developed by Willam Estler of Barboursville, West Virginia, in 1922. He registered the name in 1932, several years before "Radiator Charlie" and his "Radiator Charlie's Mortgage Lifter". Robert Howard Estler, last remaining son of William Estler, died in October 2012.

A prolific bearer and long season ensures a huge quantity of produce.

This variety takes 72-80 days to reach till maturity.
