Mortgage Lifter
AKA: Radiator Charlie
This tomato was developed by M.C. Byles (went by Charlie) of Logan, West Virgina in the
1930s. Charlie owned a radiator repair shop and had no plant breeding experience - this
tomato was the only breeding work he ever did. He was a good marketer and sold his
seedlings for $1 each. After 6 years he was able to pay off the $6,000 mortgage on his
house.
This large beefsteak fruit is very meaty with few seeds. It has a spicy flavor and low acidity.
The taste starts off mild and then builds, with a long finish on the palate.
