Our Bonnie Mortgage Lifter is a classic heirloom with a terrific tale. During the 1940s in West Virginia, a radiator repairman crossed four of the biggest tomatoes he could find to produce this beauty. He sold seedlings of it, using the proceeds to pay off his $6,000 mortgage in six years. Plants bear extra-large beefsteak tomatoes - from 1 to 3 lbs. with few seeds and a mild flavor. Fruits are pink when mature and perfect for slicing onto sandwiches. Long, indeterminate vines absolutely need staking or tall caging. Plant arrives in a biodegradable pot with a well-established root system and hardened off for easy transplanting in the garden.
