Tomato - Chef Jeff 'Mortgage Lifter' Heirloom

Size: 4" Chef Jeff


This tomato is one of my grandparent’s favorites. It was bred in the 1930’s by Radiator Charlie, the owner of a radiator repair shop that was facing bankruptcy. Charlie had no plant breeding experience, yet he cross-bred 4 varieties to develop this big, tasty tomato. He then sold 1000 plants at $1 each over six years and paid off his mortgage. The large fruits of Mortgage Lifter average 2-1/2 pounds, but can reach 4 pounds when grown in ideal conditions. These slightly flattened, pinkish-red tomatoes are meaty and flavorful with few seeds. The plants are very productive and will continue to bear until frost.
