MORTGAGE LIFTER Jätte Tomat fröer

Pris för Paket med 5 frön.

Den här gamla favoriten är känd för sin goda skörd. Den här lätt räddiseröda tomaten levererar frukt (frukter kan nå vikt från 2 kg) på 75-80 dagar och borde finnas i alla tomatälskares trädgård. Smaken är söt och passar utmärkt i salsa.

 

An outstanding Beefsteak Heritage variety, delivering large meaty fruits of excellent texture and flavour with few seeds.  Indeterminate. The name was given by a 1930's farmer whose bumper crop of this variety enabled him to save his farm from repossession

 

The Mortgage Lifter tomato was developed in the early 1930's in Logan, West Virginia by a radiator repairman, M.C. "Radiator Charlie" Byles. Without any experience in breeding, he made a successful cross of four of the largest tomatoes he could find - German Johnson, Beefsteak, an Italian variety, and an English variety. Radiator Charlie sold the first seedlings of his new tomato in the 1940's for one dollar each to customers who drove up to 200 miles for his famous plants that bore tasty tomatoes averaging two and a half pounds. With these sales, Charlie managed to pay off his $6,000 mortgage in only six years, and so the tomato was named Mortgage Lifter.

 

Sow in spring under glass or on a windowsill 1/16 inch deep.  Germination takes around 6-14 days at 65-75F.

Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 3 inch pots.

Grow on under cooler conditions and when about 8 inches tall, either plant in their growing position in the greenhouse or gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions and plant out 18 inches apart in a warm and sunny spot in moist, fertile well drained soil and keep watered.

 

What's the difference between "indeterminate" and "determinate" tomatoes?

Determinate tomatoes, or "bush" tomatoes

are varieties that grow to a compact height (generally 3 - 4'). Determinates stop growing when fruit sets on the top bud. All the tomatoes from the plant ripen at approximately the same time (usually over period of 1- 2 weeks). They require a limited amount of staking for support and are perfectly suited for container planting.

Indeterminate tomatoes

will grow and produce fruit until killed by frost. They can reach heights of up to 12 feet although 6 feet is normal.  Indeterminates will bloom, set new fruit and ripen fruit all at the same time throughout the season. They require substantial staking for support and benefit from being constrained to a central growing stem.
