This massive tomato was developed by M.C. Byles of Logan, West Virginia also called "Radiator Charlie".  He introduced this tomato that he named "Mortgage Lifter" in the late 1930s, after he sold plants for $1 each and paid off the $6000 mortgage on his house.  This is a huge, pink beefsteak that produces large quantities of low-acid, fruit that are a consistent taste test winner.  The fruits of Mortgage Lifter have been seen up to 2lbs each and even larger when grown well, but tend to average around 12oz-1lb each.
