90 days, indeterminate — The regular leaf vines of 'Carter's Mortgage Lifter' produce beautiful, large, pink, eight to twenty ounce, oblate-shaped, beefsteak-type fruit. One-pounders are common. They are meaty but juicy, delivers a nice, mild, balanced flavor that leans towards the tart side. After our fall rainy season started, 'Carter's Mortgage Lifter' plants and fruit still remained healthy and held up well without splitting or rotting.

'Carter's Mortgage Lifter' was sent to us by Craig LeHoullier who received the seed from the Seed Savers Exchange (SSE Tomato 1685). It was first made available to the gardening public by Curtis Choplin of North Augusta, South Carolina (SC CH C) who listed it in the 1984 Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook. He stated that he had obtained the tomato from, "M. E. Carter of Elliott, South Carolina who has grown them for many years. He got them from J. W. DuBard of Cedar Creek Section near Blythewood, South Carolina. DuBard's mother had grown them for many years before that. Believed to have been grown in the area for about a century."[1,2] Originally offered simply as "Mortgage Lifter," the Seed Savers Exchange added "Carter" to its name when they accessioned the variety. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
