Radiator Charlie’s Mortgage Lifter Tomato Seeds. The original Mortgage Lifter Tomato! Developed by Marshall Cletis Byles in the 1930’s in Logan, West Virginia. Mr. Byles was known as Radiator Charlie because he owned a radiator repair business at the foot of a steep hill on which trucks would often overheat. He sold Radiator Charlie’s tomato plants for $1 each in the 1940’s and paid off his mortgage in 6 years. The large healthy plants produce huge quantities of blemish free deep pink beautiful beefsteak type fruit till frost. Excellent taste and great for tomato sandwiches! Highly recommended! Indeterminate, regular leaf foliage. (85 days from transplant)
